Colin  Simmonds

Colin was trained at Moseley School of Art and the Birmingham College of Art. Today, he lives and works at Stoke Lacy surrounded by the rolling countryside of North Herefordshire. He was elected as an associate of the RBSA in 2003. Colin has submitted work to various exhibitions including the Mall Galleries, London and the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool. Many pieces are held in the collections of West Midlands Arts Council and Worcester University as well as in private collections in Britain and abroad. Colin has won prizes for both his landscape painting and portraiture. Colin sees landscape painting as the ideal vehicle for exploring emotional responses to atmosphere, colour and composition.
