Paul is an artist who works predominantly in oils, his style is a soft realism, a style that lends a warmth and gentleness to his work.

He has been painting for almost 30 years and his style has grown with him taking influence from such painters as Salvador Dali, Rene Magritte and Pierre Renoir to name but a few.

Paul lives in the north east of Scotland and takes influence in subject matter from his travels around the world while working in the IT sector and travelling on holidays.

Having had varied interests as a younger man, his paintings show this varied lifestyle of his youth, from rock climbing to fantasy to portraiture and animals. He has a very versatile approach to his subject matter.

Paul's style is maturing greatly, however, he believes it will continue to evolve as his years continue, we look forward to see what he produces in the years to come.
