Paul A Wallace ArtWork
I was born in Boston, Lincolnshire. I started painting oils from an age of 5 with my Grandmother, who used to exhibit in York Art Gallery.
When I was at school I carried on with my art and gained qualifications in GCSE and A level. I was very lucky enough to have an excellent art teacher at school, who is now the Head of Art at Eton College. I then went on to De Montford Art College in Lincoln, Lincolnshire to do a Foundation course. After which I had a prayer answered that I made to Jesus, and was guided to leave university and spend a year in Granada, Spain where I got a lot of inspiration from and was given the idea to run an Art Shop.
I have always loved art, and consider myself as very privileged to have the access to the quality art materials that I sell, and am increasingly frustrated not to be able to commit more time to my expressionistic, sporadic painting. Unless I am painting on location, I never really know what I will produce, and begin with the choice of some basic primary colours, and then let the Holy Spirit guide my hands, and take my mind on a journey of mental images within my subconscious. I enjoy letting go, and flitting through bursts of energy and movement to the calm quietness of a straight line.
In my schooling I have purposely limited my exposure to other known artists, as I wanted not to base my work on anyone unless I chose to. A huge influence was Mondriaan. To this day, I do the same. However I see significantly more artwork than ever due to the picture framing I do. What I do see is many artists doing the same things. I like to think that you will not be able to draw likenesses to many artists. But that’s not for me to decide, as I really do know nothing about art. I only paint.
Of course all I use is the paints you can find on this website.
I wouldn't dream of using anything else.~ Paul A Wallace
