Colin Parker is a New South Wales listed artist who is best known for his figurative depiction of outback Australia in oils. Colin recently spent a month as "Artist-in-Residence" at Ayers Rock Resort in the Central Desert, and has been "Artist-in-Residence" at Kakadu on many occasions. As well as his love of painting outback Australia, Colin has painted in Paris, Southern France, Rome and the North of Italy, his most successful series being Paris in the Snow - a world away from the heat, the remoteness and vast aerial distance of the Australian inland.

He has had three portraits hung in the Archibald Prize, at the Art Gallery of N.S.W., a landscape in the Wynne Prize, and has won Frist Prize in Sydney's prestigious Royal Easter Show Art competition three times.
