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
