About the artist:

Paul Nabuurs is a full-time professional artist based in Peterborough County. Paul is well known for creating striking works with a bold palette that are filled with vibrating energy and nostalgia. His paintings capture the interaction of light with the colours and patterns in an ever-changing environment.

Inspired by the landscape he is now surrounded by, his works are alive with a fresh and inspiring take on Canadian identity. Paul’s technique draws a viewer’s attention inside the painting, and allows a moment in time to be appreciated, and absorbed.

After attending the Ontario College of Art and Design (OCAD), art took a back seat to family and other ventures for a period until Paul could focus full time on his practice again. This allowed him to hone a strong personal style which has resulted in an ever-growing clientele/audience.

Paul has shown his work through many solo and group shows, accepts commissions, and has taught at various art schools and private workshops. Paul and his wife have recently moved to a new home and studio in one. It is a recently renovated church building just north of Peterborough.
