BIO: David Sweet


David Sweet is a paediatrician in Belfast and paints in his spare time.  He works mainly in soft pastel and was selected for full membership of the Pastel Society of Ireland in 2009.


His figure painting of a child, “Ladybirds”, was used for the Pastel Society of Ireland’s poster for their Autumn Exhibition in the Waterfront Hall in 2010, and his painting, “Coffee with milk and sugar”, was awarded the Pastel Society Prize for 'Best Still Life' in the same year.


David mostly enjoys figurative painting and portraiture, and enjoys exploring the effect of strong light on the human form. His commissioned portraiture has been used very successfully to raise money for charities related to newborn care.

Sweet, David
