In 2012 Paul was chosen to paint live with the BBC during their coverage

of the Queens Diamond Jubilee River Pageant, where he painted as the

Pageant unfolded in the rain from the spectacular vantage point of

Millennium Bridge. That year he was also short listed in the Artist and

Illustrator magazines Artist of the year competition.

In Septrember 2013 Paul's work was featured on the cover and in an article in the Society of all Artists "Paint"

Magazine. In 2014 Paul started writing for the Liesure Painter Magazine.

The sheer joy of painting and drawing the beauty of the world around him, from direct observation wherever possible

provides the drive behind his work. Sketching has also been an important part of Paul's working process and has

allowed him the freedom to make spontaneous studies from many different locations. Paul works from a wide range of

subjects and believes in following his instincts when it comes to choosing themes. He particularly enjoys subjects with an

interaction of contrasting elements, such as the man made and the natural world, the play of light, colour, rhythm and

movement also important factors influencing his choices.

Paul runs weekly art classes for Adults in Leigh on Sea, Westcliff and Rayleigh and runs art courses and painting holidays

in the UK and around Europe. He also demonstrates painting techniques and runs workshops for many art groups in

Essex and the South East.
