Born in Brisbane 1950, Paul attended the Brisbane College of Art and worked in the fashion industry for ten years before becoming a full-time artist in 1980. Paul paints a variety of subjects, often drawing on the power and beauty of nature for inspiration. His portrayal is of dynamic and striking sunsets, gentle riverbanks with quiet reflections, the outback, countryside and seascapes. He captures nature quite faithfully and with his individual style and sense of composition, presents work of great interest and appeal. Paul skilfully and patiently creates his works by careful observation of colour, tone and form.
It is the familiarity of Paul Evans subjects that strikes a chord with so many. His works recall memories of days spent at the beach, and imbue a sense of wonder at Australia's spectacular natural wilderness. Pauls’ work is said to be "conceptualised and abstract as the artist concentrates on capturing the impossibly transient imagery of moving water and wet sand...a tour de force of oil paint transparency”.
