Having studied at Edinburgh College of Art and Glasgow School of Art, Colin Christie has worked in computer graphics, architecture and lecturing. From the age of seven, there has never been a period in Colin's life when he has not drawn or painted. Art has always been a joy, something that gave great solace.
Colin says "Painting is a mystery in the true sense of the word, something like alchemy. I work in oils, acrylics, watercolour, gouache, pen and ink and mixed media and in many different genre. I am a colourist and tonalist painter and I think my work is in demand because of those qualities. I have had a lifelong fascination with what can be done with paint."
