Pierre Guillou


I am a largely self-taught artist who started painting whilst working as a junior doctor and medical researcher in Paris in the 1980's. After working as a surgeon and clinical research Professor, subsequently becoming the Dean of a large Medical school, I now live and paint in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales where there is year-round inspiration amongst the scenery and the people. As an artist I am far from the finished article but have studied watercolour and oil-painting techniques with several accomplished artists and currently strive to develop my own style, aided by constructive comment by the members of my local art group and other local artists.
