“norma jean aka marilyn monroe” – Oil on wood, 20 3/4 x 13″

Paul has been called a visionary artist with soul. His creativity comes from utilizing various mediums. He works with an assortment of media ranging from oil to acrylic, wet inks to dry and prefers oil. Although he feels most comfortable working from life experiences and live models, he uses this vision to bring his work into a more personal level. He aims for a magical realism rooted in the tradition of the old masters with undertones of modern influences.
