Colin Carruthers was born in Antrim Town in Northern Ireland, where he spent most of his early childhood. He moved to Birmingham in 1985, studied Fine Art at Margaret Street and completed a B.A. Honours degree in 1997.
The significance of light and shade in creating an atmosphere play an important part in Colin’s work and he is particularly interested in the interplay of light between water and sky. Colin likes to make trips to the countryside and coast whenever possible and continues to draw inspiration from his travels.
