Born in Accrington, Lancashire, UK in 1954, Jeremy Paul had a successful career in marine biology before becoming a professional Wildlife Artist.
After receiving a Doctorate for research, his work took him to live in Spain and some of the most beautiful and remote areas of the British Isles, particularly the west coast of Scotland including a period on a small island with a total population of 6.
This was his first experience of true wilderness and abundant wildlife and it was here that he started painting seriously. During the 1980s his career in art developed, even though he was now a leading authority on shellfish cultivation and in charge of a busy research and development programme based in the Scottish Highlands. A completely self taught artist, he works in acrylics, developing the painting in many layers of paint with extensive use of underpainting and glazes to alter the tone and atmosphere of the work.
