Colin originally trained in Ceramics and 3-Dimensional Design at Camberwell School of Art, where he studied with a number of renowned teachers including Colin Pearson, Ewen Henderson and Ian Godfrey. He went on to run his own pottery in London for a number of years before moving into the less abstract world of figurative sculpture.
He has exhibited throughout Great Britain and has work in private collections in Europe, South Africa and the U.S.A. In recent years he has exhibited with the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA), both at the Mall Galleries in London and at the Henley Festival of Music and the Arts, and has been commissioned to create a six-foot figurative bronze to stand outside the Farnham Road Hospital in Guildford. He also undertakes portrait commissions, working throughout the country.
Colin's relationship with West Cornwall, where he now lives, began when he was a student. He always thought of the area as his spiritual home, finding inspiration from the rugged beauty of the West Penwith landscape. Since moving from his previous home in Henley on Thames he has also returned to making pottery.
