About Paul

"I have been a practising professional artist most of my life. I had a painting accepted by the Royal Academy at the age of 15. A year later this was followed by my first solo exhibition. I have continued to paint in all media. After several years of working in Architecture, I returned to my first love of painting. I have always explored, challenged and pushed the boundaries of my chosen media; nowhere more than in the elusive spirit of watercolour."
