My Story

Welcome

I’m Paul a nature and wildlife artist, I studied art and design and then took a very long break to pursue my career in magic. Over the past year or so I have fell back in love with art, trying out different mediums, learning new techniques and throwing myself completely into this new found passion.

I joined a local art group who have been so encouraging and friendly and I really feel like I have found my purpose in life. Due to Covid19 and the cancellation of all my magic shows, I have found more time than ever to pursue this love of art.

My partner and I along with our dog Dexter made some major life changing plans in 2020, we sold our house and have moved onto a 57′ narrowboat called Morning Star. We wanted to pursue a more relaxed lifestyle and enjoy life more. Creating and selling art from a Narrowboat is a dream come true for me and I’m very pleased that my diary is filling with orders and commissions.

Art has quickly become my passion and a real change from my last profession as a professional magician.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy the artwork on display.

Materials

I specialise in pastel pencil.

Most of my work is drawn on PastelMatt paper, a thick textured paper with lots of tooth for the many layers of pastel pencil used to produce the artworks.

I sometimes draw on transfer film paper and you can achieve some amazing subtle backgrounds on this medium such as the Little Robin Artwork

Most of my artwork takes 25-30 hours of work for each piece.

All prints are printed on high quality Giclee Paper mounted and signed and ready to frame. The prints are sealed in a clear bag and a hard backed envelope for safe postage.

Our Narrowboat

We spent two years planning and saving for our Narrowboat and in 2020 we sold our house and moved aboard.

Our boat is 57′ long, storing and using art supplies can be a challenge but I wouldn’t change it for the world.

Creating and selling art from the Narrowboat is a dream come true and we get to explore the beautiful countryside finding inspiration and meeting some amazing people along the way.

Our beautiful boat was made by Bickerstaffe Narrowboats and is called Morning Star. We also have a YouTube Channel called Narrowboat Life Unlocked.

Thanks for reading and why don’t you follow us on our journey.
