Robert Collins was born in Gloucestershire in 1952 and educated at Gloucestershire College of Art and the Royal College of Art in Kensington.

He is a versatile painter working mostly in oil and expressing himself with equal conviction in landscape, still life and sometimes portrait, interiors and architectural subjects. All these become vehicles for the expression of light, space and atmosphere but despite their realism they all have an essential underlying abstract structure with finely balanced judgements of colour, shape and composition.

Since 1984 Rob has been represented by The Francis Kyle Gallery where he has had five one-man-shows and contributed to seventeen group shows.
