I am a retired obstetrician/gynaecologist.  I retired early in order to spend more time painting and drawing – which I have loved since childhood, but which I couldn’t develop in the job I was doing.

Since giving up the day job  I have been lucky enough to have had a number of solo and group exhibitions at home and abroad.

Pastel is my favourite medium.  I like its versatility and freshness and the colours one can achieve.  But pastels must be mounted behind glass so big pictures become very heavy.  For these I use oils.

Recently I have turned my hand to sculpture, attending an Open College of Art course and Wirral Metropolitan College. This is great fun but very messy and I need to get better at it
