Principal Museums Officer, Wirral Museums Service
Colin first came to Birkenhead as Keeper of Decorative Arts at the Williamson Art Gallery & Museum in 1980 and is now Wirral’s Principal Museums Officer, a post he has held for nearly 20 years.  He has extended the Williamson’s permanent collection and produced an active exhibition programme, mostly art based and with local connections, including the award-winning A textile dynasty: Arthur H Lee & Sons, Birkenhead (2008-09). He has collaborated internationally with other museums: Ravenna with La grande stagione dell’Acquerello inglese (2004) and Gdansk Albert Lipczinski (2011), and many UK galleries and museums.  Colin has written and lectured extensively on a very wide range of local art and artists, most notably Birkenhead’s own Della Robbia Pottery.
