Artist Bio

Colin Steed

colinsteedart. Contributing writer for the 'Leisure Painter' art Magazine. Can be seen on all internet platforms.

Although I work from my garden studio in Essex I spend most of my time painting onsite, plein air. Since turning professional in 1998 I have sold my work in galleries and online, tutored and demonstrated to art groups, societies and on a one to one basis. I have led many painting holidays as a tutor for the FSC at Flatford Mill, Suffolk as well as abroad in France and Spain. I have paintings in collections in the UK and as far afield as New Zealand. 

I will take on commissions, working closely with the client to meet their requirements.
