Paul is a prize-winning, professional fine artist who specialises in highly detailed pastel paintings of pets and wildlife.  He has drawn since childhood, but it was only in late 2017 after working for nearly 20 years as an IT instructor, that he quit the rat-race and decided to pursue his creative passion.

He was born and raised in Kent, England where he still lives and works with his wife and children.  

You can view a gallery of his work here, make an enquiry about a commission here or make a purchase here.  Thank you for visiting.
