In Paul's own words:
I was born in Beacon, NY and grew up in the Hudson Valley region of upstate New York. Slab-building is my "primary" method of expression. Pinch-forming is what I do to meditate, slab building is what I do to think through ideas, to philosophize concretely. I have studied educational theory and policy, art education, theology, sculpture and ceramics. After a circuitous and fortuitous journey, I am an artist-teacher at The Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Boston, MA. My partner and I share the evenings musing about sewing and quilting, ceramics and sculpture, art, life, and how far away our three children live.
