Paul has traveled as an artist in many countries of the world including China and Western Europe. He is Professor Emeritus of Spring Arbor University in Michigan where he taught painting and design for many years and conducted cross-cultural studies and art classes in Italy and Western Europe since 1976. From 1998-2003 he was visiting professor at Sichuan Education College, Chengdu, China; Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, Chongqing, China: and Guangxi Branch of Beijing Art and Design Institute, Beihai, China.
He has taught oil and acrylic painting for over 30 years, however his current painting is primarily in acrylic.
His paintings have been included in well over 100 local, regional and national exhibitions and he has received many awards for his work. His paintings are included in museum and private collections around the world. Subject matter includes Midwest landscapes, European subject matter, many parts of China, and currently nature and wildlife.
Art has been his lifelong passion and his artistic vision is based on the concept of art as form. Although he has studied and taught design and abstract form elements, his current work demonstrates striking realism, light and color. Color has always been an important element in his work and he has taught classes in color for many years.
Since 2006 Paul has participated in the daily painting movement with the purpose of making small original works of art available to private collectors who would not be able or choose to own large expensive works of art.
Paul currently is living and painting in Michigan with his wife, Li Qin who he met during his years of teaching in China. Qin’s interest in photography complements Paul’s work in painting and they are both avid travelers searching out art and photo interests in Europe, Canada and Asia. Recent travel was September 2009 in Badlands, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and Glacier National Park. In May/June 2010 travel was in United Kingdom and Scotland. Some reflections of these recent travels can be seen posted on Paul's blog.
