A native of Boston, Paul moved to San Francisco 20 years ago. He has been producing art in different mediums for the past 35 years; in 1990 he settled on assemblage sculpture, perhaps latently influenced by a boyhood passion for collecting shelf after shelf of what his mother inexplicably called "junk".
His background includes exhibit design at the Cleveland Museum of Art; art instructor; birdhouse entrepreneur; and a stint as a sales clerk in a large department store. His education encompasses travel abroad and a Masters degree in Medieval Art History from the Courtauld Institute of Art, London, England. Even at age 6 his father let him use real tools, and Paul has been improving his wood-working skills since then.
