Colin Parker

When Colin Parker first adorned the shirt of Edinburgh College of Art Football Club, I was not aware that his feet were not the only talented part of our accomplished goal scorer.

Parker specialises in furniture and bespoke carpentry for both domestic and commercial clientele. With a particularly sensitive eye for detail, palette and finish, the experienced craftsman works mainly in and around the city of Edinburgh in Scotland, however his workshop is situated in the East Lothian countryside. This rural location is a welcome departure from the industrial units of the city.

Employing biro, brand names and band T-shirts, Sarah haunts tattoo parlours, working menʼs clubs and pubs to find her subjects.

The Outsiders gallery in Newcastle is currently exhibiting a new body of her work until 3rd September 2011.
