A Family Business

Colin Williamson studied at Manchester School of Art, and subsequently had a varied career including service in the R.A.F. and teaching in higher education.
He became a full time artist in 1978, and has since enjoyed travelling across Britain in order to capture its varied landscapes in watercolour.
He lives near Whitby, on the edge of the North Yorkshire Moors and is still painting today.

Colin Williamson Prints is a family business and was established in order to make Colin’s paintings available to a wider public.
His son Robert Williamson, also from Whitby, is now responsible for the overall direction of the business as well as making the frames, framing, mounting and print production. His wife, Catherine helps with the admin and production of the sublimation side of the business.
The business has been running for nearly 30 years and we still have many customers who started to deal with us when we started.
