Colley Whisson

I was born in Brisbane, Australia in 1966. I grew up in semi-rural surrounds which gave me an appreciation for nature and the outdoors, enjoying every opportunity I’ve been given to study and appreciate its nuances.

I have long believed “It’s not what you paint but how you paint it”.  With this in the fore-front of my mind I’ve dedicated myself to developing my skills to the highest level possible. I’m aiming to tell a visual story with clarity and sophistication but I am also driven to distort and abstract the image as much as possible while still maintaining a realistic image. 

My first Solo Exhibition at age of 24 was a sell-out, a very encouraging sign to launch my career. Since then I have held numerous Solo and Joint Exhibitions. I am deeply honoured to be able to regularly hold exhibitions in Australia and abroad.  To carry the tag as quoted "one of Australia’s finest Impressionist painters" is a great personal achievement.
