Paul was born 1963 in a small rural town called Queenstown in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. After completing his schooling at Queen’s College, he entered and completed his 2-year military service as was mandated by the government of the day.
Paul then moved to Johannesburg and after a few years managed to start and run a successful aviation business. After selling he returned to his roots, the Eastern Cape, and started to paint professionally as he had dabbled in art since the age of 5, painting his 1st painting at the age of 6.
After an overwhelming local following of his artwork, Paul decided to relocate to Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa. Paul works in all mediums, namely pastel, oil and acrylic and also has been commissioned for sculpturing.
