After earning a BFA at The School of Visual Arts in New York City Paul continued his study of painting with John Phillip Osbourne at The Ridgewood Art Institute in New Jersey. His work has been included in numerous national and regional juried competitions and shows.
Using representation as a starting point these works travel to an imagined place where color & tone and the design & composition of the landscape are explored. Along with brushwork, light & shadow also play an important role in creating space & atmosphere in these vibrant works.
Influenced by Wolf Kahn and Richard Mayhew some of Paul's recent work also combines Rothko’s color filled use of space with the dramatic composition of Gustav Klimt's landscapes for these contemporary and colorful paintings in oil.
