Born in Prestwich Ritchie Collins went on to study painting and illustration at the College of Building and Printing, Glasgow before settling in Edinburgh; Noting that he has been painting all his life.
Influenced by the Scottish coast and wild countryside, Ritchies works capture our lanscape in visions of colour and texture not seen before. 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 paintings their unique whimsical quality.
As a well celebrated Scottish artist Collins is now in many private art collections. Here at EAS, we are privileged to have exclusive prints available and Collins work has become one of our most iconic prints.
