Colette Bain

Colette Bain grew up in the Lake District and is a self-taught artist who has been exhibiting her work both nationally and internationally since 2008. She now lives and works in the small south Cumbrian village of Arnside. Colette Bain is inspired by folk and fairy tales. Colette creates figures from papier-mache which are then housed in boxes or vintage tins and decorated with collage, acrylic paints, gesso and pencil. The whole process is one of open discovery.
