About

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR TAKING THE TIME TO LOOK, TO READ, TO SEE
My work is about passion.
NEVER, EVER believe that you do not know what it is that you see when you look at artwork. NEVER.
Emerson said “Trust thyself, every heart vibrates to that iron string.” If it moves you. If you can feel it, if you see yourself in its shadows or a memory or a hope, a colour, a place a feeling – if you empathize… if it makes your breath catch in your throat.
That – THAT exquisite moment is such a gift to me. It is the greatest hope that I carry with me in my hopeful little heart of hopefulness.
It is a great honour to be in any way a part of such feelings with my work.

PAUL'S ART CAREER:
I've won NINETEEN AWARDS in the real not-on-line world, one of them international –including the WA Premier's Award from Geoff Gallup in 2003. He also opened my biggest exhibitions in 2004, when he was Premier of West Australia. I have a BA in fine arts, but learned to paint anyway. I've sold hundreds of paintings, including to the UK and a few to the USA. I was invited to exhibit at the SOHO ART GALLERY in NEW YORK, but I was too ill to take up residency there, and was forced to refuse. Ah well.
I’ve been writing far more than painting in the last few years, and I received a first place in the 2017 Armadale Writing Award. Most recently, two of my stories received awards and will be published in the 2018 Atlantis Writing Award Anthology, which is global.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my work - Paul.
