As well as his love of painting outback Australia, Colin has painted in Paris, Southern France, Rome and the North of Italy – his “Paris in the Snow” series winning many accolades.
Colin is a respected Art Judge and recently completed four years as President of the Royal Art Society of
New South Wales. He has had three portraits hung in the prestigious Archibald Prize at the Art Gallery of N.S.W., a landscape in the Wynne Prize and has won First Prize in Sydney’s Royal Easter Show competition on three occasions.
