Since the age of 5, Paul has always drawn the birds and wildlife he has seen around him. A self taught artist, his attention to color, contrast and detail have allowed him to gain both regional and national recognition for his artwork. In 1994 he placed Third in the Federal Junior Duck Stamp Design contest, representing his home state of Maryland. In 1998, at the age of 21, he became the youngest artist to win the Maryland Migratory Waterfowl
Stamp contest. He won again in 2006, 2013 and became a four time winner of the competition in 2017. He has also won the Oklahoma duck stamp contest in 2000 as well as numerous top 5 place
finishes in contests nationwide. He has had his artwork displayed at such venues as the Ward Museum of Wildfowl Art and the Easton Waterfowl Festival. When not painting, he can
be found fishing or getting first hand reference for his paintings.
He has been very active with local and national conservation organizations such as Ducks Unlimited and other civic organizations, donating time and
artwork. He makes his home in Pocomoke , MD
