The best way to appreciate any art is to see it in the flesh. The images on this site give a flavour of my work, but to really see them its best to come in person to one of the exhibitions and events throughout the year. Below is a list of events for 2018 / 2019 - more will be added as they are anounced / arranged.

Images on a website are no match for seeing the original picture in real life. For this reason I sell originals only face to face through events. I do offer a range of merchandise through my redbubble account - www.redbubble.com/people/richardpaul
