Paul was born in Cheshire in 1947 and attended a Museum based school in Chester where he was taught traditional methods of painting and drawing. At Manchester College of Art he soon rejected realism in favour of abstract expressionism. As a young artist Paul moved to Jersey where he fell in love with its light and colour and decided to stay. Paul has had numerous exhibitions in Jersey, France and Switzerland and has his work in collections world wide. He believes in his art being a kind of journey.
