Colin completed a Post-Graduate in Printmaking in the mid-1970s. and worked as a master screen printer and graphic designer, then taught printmaking at Colchester School of Art. Colin then had a major a career shift spending the next twenty or so years involved in education in countryside management. Twelve years ago, Colin began to create the print studio at Craigshaw Barns, and was able to return to being a full time artist. Most Colin’s recent prints are combinations of linocut and screenprint and his subjects are often those of traditional wildlife imagery. Colin strives to take his own experience informed approach and go beyond the purely decorative; and sometimes incorporate his own poetry as an integral part of some prints.

We are doing our bit to help the environment. All of our cards are printed locally on carbon captured sustainable card stock and carry the Woodland Carbon logo. Envelopes are made from recycled paper sources and we are endeavouring to replace all cellophane wraps with biodegradable packaging by 2022. All newly printed cards are being packed in Nativa wraps which are fully biodegradeable. As a business we always try to up-cycle and recycle cardboard packaging, that can not be up-cycled is shredded for animal bedding and then enters a composting system.
