Paul is creating art full time after practicing architecture for decades and just making art in his free time. While an architect, Paul’s role included integrated-art-in-architecture projects using etched glass, photo-based glass art and mosaic tile.
Paul works in a variety of media including screen-printing, digital printmaking, public art installations, mixed media collage, found-object assemblage, and mosaic.
Paul’s current artistic endeavors include making sketch collages every evening while listening to podcasts. These are quick (about an hour) collages with various sets of self-imposed rules such as using only tourist literature from Barcelona, using only circles, not using any representational imagery, and even adding small found objects fastened to the paper.
Paul lives in Portland, Oregon with his artist wife Kathryn.
Paul and Kathryn remodeled their home last year to create a collaborative artist’s room-share, providing rooms and studio space for three artists.
