While growing up, Colin was very shy and quiet. The only outlet he had was drawing; eventually his fellow classmates would point out his doodles with amazement. Finding that this was a great means of making friends but more importantly, for him a way of connecting with someone without words. Over the years he has developed his skills in the different mediums of Fine Arts at UFV which led him into various fields of work such as an Illustrator and as an instructor at the Chilliwack Cultural Center where he hopes he can help others make a connection through their drawings as he did.
