Paul was born in Co. Durham in 1970. After a Foundation Diploma at Cleveland College of Art he moved to Kent in 1989, graduating from Kent Institute of Art and Design with a B.A.(Hons) in Fine Art (Painting) in 1992. He lives with his family near Faversham in Kent and works from a studio close to the coast and the Swale estuary, which has inspired much of his recent landscape work...

I like to employ a range of materials and techniques in my work, often water based media - acrylic, watercolour, ink - on a variety of surfaces from paper to board, canvas to driftwood. The paintings explore the landscape and coastline of Kent, its flora, fauna and endlessly changing light and atmosphere. Paintings are begun in the field, after an initial period of walking, sketching, observing and committing a place to memory. From this starting point the work starts to take on a life of its own, with chance and accident in the painting process being an important factor in the finished painting.
