Hello and welcome to my website.
I am Paul Hinks and I am a professional 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.
