Hello and welcome to my website.

I am Paul Hinks and I am a fine artist with an emphasis on detailed wildlife and pet portraiture.  I live and work in the south-east of England with my wife and children.  Although I have some art education, I abandoned art for more than 20 years and worked as an instructor in the IT industry.  That changed in late 2017 when a deep state of dissatisfaction and a sense I had abandoned my true calling drove me to quit the rat-race and pursue my creative passion.

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


Best Regards,
