Colkett was an artist, primarily of landscapes, working throughout East Anglia. He was a pupil of James Stark, and was associated with the Norwich School of painting, whose leaders were John Crome and John Sell Cotman. Colkett exhibited in London at the Royal Academy and the British Institution in the early 19th century. Paintings of his can be seen today in the Norwich and Nottingham galleries, and his paintings are regarded as highly collectable.
