About the artist:

Paul Nabuurs has been a full-time professional artist for more than 10 years now, he is well known for creating striking works with a bold colour palette that are at once 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 a mix of landscape and city scenes, his works are alive with a fresh and inspiring take on Canadian identity. Paul’s technique draws the 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 (Toronto) art took a backseat 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 recently moved to a new home and studio; a recently renovated church building just north of Peterborough.
