As he grew older he came to know and admire the work of another Norfolk based artist John Cyril Harrison who further fuelled his passion for both birds and art.
Colin’s early adult life was spent as an accountant, but he continued to paint and sketch the East Anglian landscape. He finally decided to take to painting full time and conducted a highly successful one-man exhibition in the West End of London.
Since then he has never looked back. Colin’s skill enables him to create the most wonderful light and atmosphere in his paintings and consequently his work has enjoyed enormous success in some of London’s top auction houses and galleries.
From the early evening glow of a snow-laden landscape in Scotland to a Norfolk dike in summer with Moorhen and Coot scuttling around Colin’s paintings can transport you. His work is keenly collected through the UK and North America.
