Robin MacDonald

Born at Barnet, London in 1941, son of Alexander Berry MacDonald (1905-1978) and his wife Kathleen C. née Burgmaier (1909-1967), who married at Derby in 1933. Robin has painted in watercolour and oil since childhood but after a career in medicine as a GP in Maldon, Essex until his retirement in 2002, imposed a limit on his hobby although he used to paint most days. He has lived in Essex most of his adult life married in the Chelmsford district in 1965, Audrey J MacLaine. Since retirement he has been able to devote more time to his challenging but highly enjoyable activity and spending much of his time painting and sketching out of doors. Robin paints mainly in watercolour in a fast and loose style and enjoys capturing the odd corners and backwaters of East Anglia rather than the better known landmarks. A former member of the East Anglian Group of Marine Artists and a former chairman of the Suffolk Art Society. Robin has exhibited throughout East Anglia also in France and the Hong Kong Hilton. He lived at Hall Cottage, Ashen, near Clare in Suffolk (Ashen in actually in Essex), but now lives in France.
