RITCHIE COLLINS - SCOTLAND
Ritchie Collins was born in Prestwick, on the West Coast of Scotland in 1978. He has painted all his life and studied painting and illustration at the College of Building and Printing Glasgow, before settling in Edinburgh.
Ritchie Collins art is influenced by the Scottish coast and wild countryside. Celtic art, myths and Scottish folklore are a constant source of inspiration. Vibrant colour simple form and a creative use of texture are woven together to give the original paintings their unique magical quality.
Speaking about his paintings Richie Collins says:
"All the things I paint come from dreams or memories of places I've been. What is important to me is trying to capture the true feelings of a place in time, rather than the reality."
Each painting tells a story and contains endless details and something new to explore with every glance. Ritchie Collins' paintings have wide appeal and there is an understandable growing demand for his art works.
Ritchie uses his Gallery in Leith, Edinburgh as a working studio to create his art work, customers are always welcome to come and see the paintings take shape.
