ARTIST Colin Ruffell is exhibiting works at Malvern Theatres until the end of December.

Colin Ruffell became a professional artist at 26, after studying painting, design and printing in Hornsey and Portsmouth. He also has an Open University degree in psychology and aesthetics. He paints in many styles, including traditional landscapes and complex modernist abstracts.

Bill Nicholls of Cowleigh Gallery, who curates the exhibitions at Malvern Theatres, said: "His floral still lifes are superb but the main body of work concentrates on the London scenes."
