Paul trained at Bath Academy of Art and has lived and worked in North Wiltshire as a teacher and artist for about 40 years. He has exhibited widely in the UK throughout this time and has work in many private collections.

“The drive to make art derives from childhood. I constantly remind myself that art is so serious and life is so short that making art must be fun. Naturally fun has a price - routine and the rigorous practice of drawing. My working process is driven by discovery rather than plan. This often starts when I find, by chance, an object, place, image or situation which resonates in some as yet indefinable way. Typically I will draw in 2D and 3D, paint, write about, film, sound record, and any other exploratory means to find some reasons for the attraction and to make some objectives. My outcomes are most often paintings, which may result from developmental work in drawing, collage, composition and three dimensions. They tend to be scenarios for interpretation rather than descriptions to be understood."  -Paul Deacon
