Colin Bradley was told he “would never be any good at art” by a teacher at school. He was a young boy and it completely devastated him. Can you imagine, he had just finished a fireworks picture he was working on and a teacher told him it was terrible.
That stayed with him for years and put him off any kind of art.
Until a sudden tragedy forced him to turn to art. It was like therapy and he was able to copy with the grief and loss and channel it into painting and drawing.
Over time he was able to create a business from selling his work and eventually teaching.
Now he has a career spanning 33 years, with numerous television appearances, demonstrations and workshops all over the world and a thriving YouTube Channel with over 3 million views. Thank goodness he didn’t listen to his art teacher.
