With a background in Fine Art Colleen joined BHCC in 2004. She learned to scuba dive in Cornwall and Wales in 1978 and after a gap of 32 years, began taking part in coral reef conservation projects in South East Asia. She has experienced frequent set-backs in her progress as a self-taught underwater photographer but her enthusiasm remains undaunted. As well as showing images of the weird and wonderful, she will describe some of the unusual experiences she has had during her watery travels.
