Hi there, I’m Paul and I am an actor, singer and pre-covid I was employed as a Box Office Manager. Unfortunately I was made redundant in November 2020 and like so many; struggled for a while to find a way forward.
I picked up a paint brush again for the first time in years and started painting watercolours, firstly as an aid to my mental health and whilst it was extremely therapeutic, I was advised by family and friends to do something about using this untapped talent to my advantage.
So I set up an Etsy shop and am selling Giclée prints, greeting cards and more. I’m looking forward to my business growing.
