Paul’s style is expressive, energetic and full of colour. His paintings capture the feeling and emotion of a place, whilst depicting the interplay between light, land, water and sky. His dramatic interpretations of the English landscape show his response to the ever-changing seasons, weather and light; and his bold use of palette knife, brush strokes and mixed media, result in distinctive mark-making, culminating in vigorous, textured landscapes.
He was born in 1961 in Gloucestershire and studied at Cheltenham College of Art. He then moved to London where he worked from his studio in Holborn taking on commissions for public works of art worldwide, as well as for private clients.
In 1991 he took a year’s sabbatical to paint whilst travelling the world, this journey took him through Africa, India, Southeast Asia and Central America. On the back of this he was commissioned to be expedition artist on the first ever crossing of the Taklamakan Desert in North West China for 3 months, after which he exhibited these works at various shows, including the Royal Geographical Society in London.
He continues to exhibit around the country, whilst still travelling abroad regularly to find inspiration for his paintings. His most recent work is inspired by the landscapes and coastal areas of England as well as a recent trip to India.
