Born in Cumbria in 1964 Colin Halliday’s paintings have been described as having painterly qualities and romantic inclinations that shine from the canvas.
Halliday graduated with a BA (Hons) Fine Art degree from Exeter University (1987–88). Since then he has gone on to exhibit in solo and group exhibitions across the UK; including at the Dulwich Picture Gallery, London (selected by Tom Phillips (RA) and The National Trust property, Sutton House, London.
Having worked in many different styles and subject matter his work has evolved into a fresh and unique style that reflects his deep affinity with nature and the British landscape.
Halliday moved to Derbyshire in 2005 and now concentrates on landscape painting and while the work is based on his surroundings it is not however bound by that.
