AS RECENTLY SEEN ON BBC COUNTRYFILE

Paul studied at Cheltenham College of Art, following which he spent two years working for a fine art auctioneer. He then moved to London working from a studio in Holborn and started taking commissions for public works of art, as well as for private clients, and became an established artist working worldwide.

 

In 1992 Paul moved to Hampshire Following this, in 1993, he was commissioned to be expedition artist on the first ever crossing of the Taklamakan Desert in North West China for three months, after which he exhibited these works at various shows, including at the Royal Geographical Society in London.

 

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 which culminates in vigorous, textured landscapes.

 

Paul travels abroad regularly to find inspiration for his paintings, having visited India and Thailand recently.
