While working on a Masters in Social Work in Washington DC in the early 70's, Paul was inspired to undertake an art career after seeing an Andrew Wyeth exhibition at the White House.

Upon his return to Halifax, he began work as a commercial artist but soon moved with his family to a farm in Lunenburg County and began to paint the natural beauty around him. His work was exhibited at several galleries in Halifax and Montreal and can be found in private collections in Canada, the USA, England, Australia and China.

In the early 90's, he started carving and painting the birds of Nova Scotia, mounting them on driftwood and eventually on background-paintings to give a 3-D effect. In the last few years, his success has prompted him to make this the focus of his work.
