Colleen Corlett , Dip AD ATD MISTD
A graphic designer and typographer involved in stamp design for the Isle of Man and many other countries for over 30 years, Colleen’s paintings tend to reflect this attention to detail. She loves to make things, so apart from her well known watercolours of Manx scenes, she works in stained glass, ceramics and wood and pencil. A lot of her Government work is illuminated addresses involving gold embossed calligraphy, stained glass windows and carving. She designed the Tynwald medal and assorted memorials and awards. She taught classes at the College of Further Education for several years.
As a Channel Islander finding herself in the Isle of Man, her ‘new’ home is a constant inspiration because of its beauty and history and she welcomes the opportunity to express this in a variety of media.
