Paul Fudge was born, raised and educated in England. He took up painting at an early age, and after leaving school he studied art at the University of Reading, earning a National Diploma in Design and the Art Teachers' Diploma.
Paul emigrated to Canada in 1967, moving to Regina, Saskatchewan. After four years of teaching art at the high school level, he became the first director of the outreach program at the MacKenzie Art Gallery in that city. In the mid 1970's he took on the role of Director of the Arts Branch of the Saskatchewan Government, beginning a career that spanned more than twenty years in public service in the province.
While he continued to paint, time in the studio was limited because of other commitments. This led to his decision to retire in 1999 and to move to Nanaimo, British Columbia, where he now focuses on his own work.
Paul works primarily in acrylic and oil paint on canvas, and much of his subject matter is derived from the landscape. He has work in private collections in England, Germany and across Canada.
