Born in the North East of England, Paul studied Fine Art in Sunderland.
Since graduating he has combined lecturing at Sunderland College and working as a practising artist.
He has exhibited work in many exhibitions in England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Norway, from the Northern Open Exhibition on Tyneside in 1986 to the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour at the Mall Galleries, London and the Scottish Royal Academy, Edinburgh.
Prizes awarded include the John Laing, The Sliver Longboat, and a major prize sponsored by Shell UK. Paul has work in various private collections and his etchings have been published by Macdonald Orbis in ‘Learn to Print.’
A consistent theme throughout Paul’s work is his continuing desire to capture the mood and atmosphere created by the fall of light on his subject matter, be it landscape or interior
