Paul studied fine art at Manchester Polytechnic before taking up a career in graphic design and illustration. Since then he has worked for a variety of clients in the Uk, Europe and the USA. From 1987 onwards he has been a partner in a local graphic design company.

Paul works from sketches and photographs, using them as a drawing aid to capture images that he edits to use as a framework for a painting or print.

" I take motifs - such as a typical arch, a palm leaf, a patch of tiled floor, a shop front, a figure - and put them together to create an impression - maybe a street scene or a building. It's a symbolic rather than a visual representation."

He exhibits in mixed shows and exhibitions across the UK.
