Visual Art

Paul discovered his artistic abilities at the age of six, when he became annoyed at the praise being lavished on a visiting child for a drawing it had done. He grabbed a birthday card with Donald Duck on the front and disappeared - half an hour later, he returned triumphantly to present an almost perfect copy. His art later included photography and video films, many examples of which are included throughout this website.

A recurring theme for the annual birthday card for his father; the first from age 14 and the second from 10 years later in 2003 showing the growing influence of permaculture.
Preliminary sketches - pencil and colour - for school GCSE Art assignment View From My Bedroom Window. Age 15.
The theme for the school art class was The First World War - age 13.
