Paul Jorgensen was born in 1947 in Tofino on Vancouver Island’s west coast, but raised in Nanaimo, British Columbia. After graduating from the Emily Carr School of Art and Design in the early 1970’s, he spent some time living and traveling in Europe, from Norway to the Greek Island of Mykonos. After several business ventures and painting in his “spare” time, and with the encouragement from well
known artists, Nixie Barton and Grant Leier, he started painting full time with success 20 years ago. He has painted since childhood, but considers himself an“overnight success after 55 years”. Collectors appreciate his winning combination of fantasy, whimsy, patterns and colour.
The whimsical paintings are full of questions and little gems of interest can be found every time you look at his paintings. His bright cheerful colours, and textures, with twisted houses and stretched or fat trees create interest in looking for more surprises. The paintings tell a story and create new perspectives with an interlocking puzzle of forms and shapes.
“My paintings are not intended to be a serious view of the world. I like work that involves imagination and technique,and suggests a story. I just want to make people happy looking at my paintings”.
