I work in acrylic.  I love bright colours, bold lines and a naïve, almost childlike interpretation of the landscape.  I took up painting mostly because it helps me fill the long dark hours of the night when I cannot sleep (I’m a chronic insomniac) and it helps me manage my anxiety.  It’s a buzz when someone says they like your work or asks to buy it.  I have recently been working on pieces to be dispatched to former Dundonald residents in the USA: it’s a great boost to your self-esteem.

Colin is a modest guy. He is the founder of the DAC. He wanted to ‘do’ change, not talk about it. We run the site, not him, so we can put this here to say thank you and embarrass him.
