Colin was born in North Lincolnshire and attended Wolverhampton, Farnham and Walthamstow Schools of Art; completing a Post Graduate Certificate in Printmaking.

He worked as a ‘master’ printer, editioning original screen prints for many well-known artists whilst teaching printmaking and design in London; then as a designer, commercial screen printer and gamekeeper.
After career shifts within education Colin is back to being a full time artist after setting up a print workshop and studio to produce original limited edition screenprints and developed the etching and relief printmaking facilities at Craigshaw Barns Studio.
