a solo exhibition featuring the work of

Paul Rowntree


Paul Rowntree studied painting at St Martin's School of Art in London, England. He has worked as an Illustrator and Graphic Designer for over 30 years. His work has been used by IBM, Whirlpool and Volkswagen. Paul has recently returned to painting, using as his subjects the landscapes and vegetation of the Hudson Valley, the New England Coast and the Hocking Hills of Ohio. 


Lately I have become more focused on the intimate details of a landscape. I paint grasses and reeds because they always surprise me. The closer I get to the intimate details of a landscape the more is revealed and yet a mystery remains.”
