From an early age Paul was inspired to paint and has followed his passion throughout his life, through formal training and several decades of personal exploration and development as an artist. He says: “we are bombarded daily with images of the human condition. We live in a time of instant icons, engendering new interpretations of reality at a rapid rate. In relation to my work, this sets the stage for a visual dialogue, something for each viewer to interpret differently.” Paul has held solo and group shows in Victoria, B.C. and Salt Spring Island since 1989. He was was a founding member of the Alliance of Salt Spring Artists, a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and Salt Spring Arts Council. His paintings are in private and corporate collections in Canada, USA, Europe and Japan. Paul joined the Salt Spring Gallery in 2017 and his work can be viewed at
