Paul was born in Derbyshire and moved to Devon as a young boy where he collected a series of awards as a Junior Artist.
His first job was as a pottery designer and he quickly moved on to become an Illustrator for the South Devon Scene, a local newspaper based in the internationally renowned art college at Dartington Hall near Totnes. He became an immediate success and was commissioned to produce pen and ink drawings for clients in the publishing industry.
Paul is passionate about his painting and in recent years he has moved towards oils and mixed media, creating wonderfully atmospheric and vivid landscapes full of life and drama.He has achieved international recognition for quality, clarity, dramatic light and atmosphere in his work, which now hangs in locations as far spread as New York, Nantucket, Australia and New Zealand to name but a few.
Paul creates his work in his studio as well as on location and can be found demonstrating his art at Avon Beach, near Bournemouth, most weekends during the winter & summer months.
