Colin lives and works near Whitby in North Yorkshire, taking inspiration for his painting from the North Eastern coast and moors and the Lake District that lie on his doorstep. His work is representational, based on observation of the constantly changing and intriguing light, and seek to create atmosphere through the use of dramatic light and bold mark making. Compositional tension is important and created by the careful arrangement of different pictorial elements, colour, texture, light etc. Colin's work has been very popular at Aubergine Art and every new collection is anticipated with excitement.
