Robert Colebrook Keirstead
Robert Colebrook Keirstead is a member of the famous Keirstead family of artists. He signs his paintings "Colebrook" and his home and spectacular gallery are called Colebrook Studio.
Colebrook was born in Toronto on June 14, 1939 and was raised in the Village of Sharbot Lake located in Eastern Ontario, Canada.
From a very early age he worked in the bush gathering sap in the spring and skiding pulp wood with a horse in the winter, all the while studying and learning about the wildlife that surrounded him.
After several years in engineering drafting, Colebrook at the age of 35, left his job to become a full-time professional artist. Through several art galleries and many shows he quickly rose through the ranks of popular Canadian Wildlife and Landscape artists.
Colebrook's crowning achievement was winning the coveted title of Canadian Artist of the year for Ducks Unlimited in 1991.
All of the above artists are featured in our gift shop, June - October.
