Paul Ward

I live in Cheshire, England. I have a fine art degree from Leeds College Of Art (now Leeds University).

I paint a lot of Dog commissions, but I also have a passion for endangered animals, especially those lesser known.  I try to incorporate the latter in the designs I print for my organic textile business. My preferred mediums are oil paint, watercolour, pen and ink, screen printing.

My inspiration comes from a Dog’s outlook on life.  Anywhere away from the roar of tyres on tarmac. I offer a wide range of commissions in all media.  However I would say my specialty is contemporary oil portraiture. My ambition is to support myself solely by the merits of my artist pursuits.
