Paul was born in Cuckfield on 28th May 1981. He studied art at Lewes Tertiary College for 3 years (97 - 00) and then progressed to the Kent Institute of Art and Design for a further 4 years (00 - 04). He experimented while in further education and focused on instalations and experimental animations, as well as screen printing and film making. Even though drawing and painting was what guided him into university he tended to be more interested in art forms that weren't ever in his grasp. The experimentation in different art forms was short lived after leaving university and he again went back to his original passion - drawing. Paul decided to work for himself as a freelance artist and in the coming years he taught himself Photoshop and began the process of self development as a an illustrator.
Paul currently lives and works in Toronto, Canada.
