Painting for the majority of his life, Paul has explored many styles of arts, but has become comfortable in using a simple, impactive and naive style for his artistic expression. Despite influences from artists such as Lowry, Mackenzie Thorpe and Alfred Wallace, Pauls art has an overwhelming sense of individuality about it. Aforementioned, Pauls love for art and sports is portrayed in his art work the majority of his work being centred on Leicester City Football Club and Leicester Tigers.
