Paul Rowntree studied painting at St Martin's School of Art in London, England. He has worked in Montreal, New York City and New York’s Hudson Valley as an illustrator and graphic designer for over 30 years. His work has been used by many large corporations such as IBM, Whirlpool and Volkswagen. Paul has recently returned to painting using as his subjects the landscapes and vegetation of the Hudson Valley, Texas and Ohio.

“I am interested in the traditional skills of painting and drawing, but I try to see my subject with a non-traditional eye. Lately I have become more focused on the intimate details of a landscape. What interests me is the reality of a small section of the landscape - the hidden world revealed. I use paint to explore the moments between realism and illusion.”

Paul continues to explore the imagery and mystery of close up observation of reeds and grasses.  His work has been exhibited twice at The Salmagundi Club in New York and in galleries throughout Connecticut, Rhode Island, Ohio and Texas. He currently maintains a home in Columbus, Ohio.
