Paul was born in 1969 in Brighouse, West Yorkshire, England.

His passion for painting began at an early age, and after graduating from Art College where he studied graphic design for 5 years, he set up his own business in graphics and sign design. Whilst running this for more than 12 years, he spent his free hours honing his watercolour painting skills and in 2007 he decided the time was right to make the transition to fine art painting. 

Since then he has held solo and group exhibitions selling his paintings both nationally and abroad. Paul predominantly paints in watercolour, a medium which he enjoys for its transparency and fluidity. 

He is a versatile painter and his work is very varied including landscapes, seascapes, still Life, wildlife and floral. Although Paul paints mostly in watercolour, he is also adept in acrylic, oil, gouache, pastel and graphite.

Paul’s landscape paintings are predominantly in and around the Yorkshire Dales and the Pennines, capturing the beauty of the landscape in all its moods and seasons. He also paints the Lakes, Snowdonia in Wales and on the Kintyre peninsula in Scotland, where he exhibits all year round. His paintings are in public and private collections both in the UK and abroad.

Paul has had more than 150 of his paintings published in print to date.
