Inspired by nature and captivated by human nature, I paint to capture the true essence of anything that stirs the soul while drawing attention to the incredible beauty that surrounds us and is within us.

I believe that art is a form of therapy and can provide insight if not solutions to many of life's problems. It will be this belief that will fuel my ideas and exploration in my journey as an artist.

Currently I am painting in encaustic, or hot wax painting. This centuries old art form provides unique textural qualities and a challenging complexity. I have only scratched the surface, so to speak, of this incredible medium.

BIO: I am an honours graduate of Ontario College of Art and Design. I have been a designer, illustrator, sculptor and painter. For further info please email me at: paul@paulgarbett.ca
