Art is Paul’s life, a passion within him. He feels that he is on a journey creating new and exciting image and adding a unique and inspired view of the world.

His early paintings were figurative studies in the Pre-Raphaelite style; he has always enjoyed the challenge of drawing and painting people. Life is a mosaic of different memories, we all experience so many emotions from great joy to deep sorrow, from the nostalgic to the magical – these experiences are the source of Paul’s paintings, offering universal themes that he hopes will appeal to popular imagination.
