Artist : Paul Franks

I was born in the North East in 1954. After taking a degree in Chemistry, I worked in science and technology until 2014, and have lived in Essex since 1981. I was an enthusiastic painter at school, but gave up in my teens. I began painting again as a hobby in 1986, initially concentrating on watercolour and soon achieved success in local art exhibitions. This encouraged me to exhibit more widely, and to try my hand at other media. Although I have occasionally attended courses, I am largely self taught. I now paint in both watercolours and oils, and occasionally in acrylics and pastels.
