Colin has been an artist since he was very young, but only began painting when he was 18 years old. His first instructor was Russell Mather Jr., from whom he learned more about carving. At the suggestion of his instructor, Colin began studying at Freda Diesing School from artists such as Ken Niel, Stan Bevan and Dempsey Bob and graduated in 2011. He has completed three signs outside Terrace Library in BC and other private commissions. Colin considers his work to be both traditional and commentary, and strives to use it in a new way without losing the tradition and culture of the Northwest Coast art form.
