Colin Smithson

I live in North Yorkshire working as an artist, painting in oils and acrylics. My paintings often recall remembered places and experiences and reflect my interest in tradition and heritage.

The stone walls and barns of the Northern Dales have been recurring themes in my work, typifying preciousness, protection and enclosure.

More recently I have been interested in the coast and have been exploring its traditions and myths.

I use strong colour and texture and often employ narrative in my paintings, stemming from my work as an illustrator.
