'I Paint With Light Now' Digital Media Exhibition

Artist Statement:
"The intellectual process of painting has not changed for me since I switched to the digital format five years ago. It remains an intuitive, somewhat baffling and always mysterious activity for me. I would not be using digital if that essential part of painting had to be sacrificed. I think it's important for you to know that I first experienced and practiced my craft as a painter for 40 years before I tried this new technology. And I...more info

Born and raised in Terrace BC, Paul received his first guitar at 16 but didn’t pick it up until he was 18 – and he hasn’t put it down since. Raised on gospel and country, Paul played in rock bands until the defining moment when his cousin gave him tickets to see Stevie Ray Vaughn. From then on it was nothin’ but the blues, throwing himself into the likes of Buddy Guy, Jimi Hendrix and Muddy Waters, Paul soaked up everything he could lay his hands on.
