Sculpture and Paintings by Colin Jacobs
Bird Forms in St Beads Red Sandstone & Birchover Limestone
Welcome to my website. I am a sculptor and painter who has exhibited widely in the UK and abroad. I work in stone, wood and mild steel drawing inspiration from the natural world for figurative and abstract work. My paintings use the palette knife technique. I have lived in Asia and Africa and draw on traditional motives and compositions.
My work has appeared in several mixed exhibitions and galleries in London, Manchester and Cheshire. I recently moved to Great Elm, Frome, Somerset.
I have participated in several mixed exhibitions and solo exhibitions most recently with galleries in Manchester, Stockport and Macclesfield. I welcome commissions for homes and gardens.
