Paul Hopkinson I started drawing when I was knee high to a grasshopper but didn’t pick up my first brush until the age of twelve. This was when I first started to paint in oils with my Uncle, Peter Hopkinson who is a fantastic Artist. We ventured into the Derbyshire countryside with canvases and easels.
I now paint as a full time artist and have nearly 40 years of experience. I love every minute of my work, the time always seem to go too quickly when I paint though!
When I am asked what would be my preferred subject I would say without a doubt birds and animals! I love trying to get the life within the eyes in my finely detailed realistic paintings.
