Paul Apps turned to full-time painting in 1987 after a career in public sector working. He is self-taught as an en plein air wildlife and landscape artist painter and author of a series of books on art techniques. He has been successful in showing and selling his work in galleries in the USA, UK, Africa, Singapore and Europe.
Paul has wide artistic interests, including land and seascape painting, capturing on canvas images of wildlife, both European and African, and teaching artistic techniques from his studio and gallery in the South East in England. Paul is a signature member of the USA-based Society of Animal Artists, and, through this and other memberships his experience and techniques of en plein air painting is continuously enriched.
Amongst this rich portfolio of activities he spends as much time as possible painting the timeless landscape of his own original roots, Romney Marsh, the sparsely populated wetland area of Kent and East Sussex in the south-east of England covering some 260 km². Thomas Ingoldsby, 19th century author of The Ingoldsby Legends, referred to Romney Marsh as the “Fifth Continent”, such was its uniqueness of geography and potential for legendary tales.
