Paul likes to go for long walks in the mountains and make drawings of them. He thinks that a connection to the natural world is more meaningful than a digital one. In the past few years, his focus has been on woodblock printmaking. He enjoys the balance between the rough act of carving the wood and the delicate printing process. Paul adds personal style to traditional techniques, such as brushing acrylic paint onto the wood panels rather than rolling ink; this technique creates unique mono-prints.
