After receiving a gold medal from the National Scholastic Art Awards in 1975, Paul attended Boston University School of Fine Arts. Contrary to the trends of that time, Boston University provided an educational foundation that emphasized the fundamentals of classical art training: anatomy and form, color, composition and draftsmanship. His professors included Joseph Ablow, David Aronson, and John Wilson. He received his BFA degree in painting in 1979. In the 1980s and ‘90s Paul created artwork for publication. His work won many awards and has appeared and been published worldwide. Former clients include: Digital, Cigna, Fidelity, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Sunoco, TIME, U.S. News and World Report, The Wall Street Journal, Cahners, Prentice Hall, Houghton Mifflin and Ziff-Davis.
Paul now lives and paints primarily in Massachusetts, in the outer parts of Cape Cod. He was featured as the cover artist on the July 2007 issue of American Art Collector magazine, and was also featured in June 2009 and June 2010. He has had two solo shows at the Cape Cod Museum of Art. In 2004 Paul was awarded a one month residency at the Fine Art Work Center in Provincetown, MA. He is a member of Oil Painters of America, American Impressionist Society and the Salmagundi Club in NYC.
