Haven't been to his studio but have seen many of his creations at a big animal fiber event. Words cannot describe how realistically his animals are! He is a true artist.

I collect sheep and Colin makes beautiful sheep! I love to visit his studio and add the unique sheep to my collection. Each piece is made with care and so lifelike with personality. If you are in the area-I would recommend stopping:)
