ABOUT PAUL DYSON:
Paul Dyson has won five national awards. All his paintings are inspired by his own personal experiences in the wild and every painting has a story behind them.
He studied Art & Design at Mansfield College of Art, taking up a career in Graphic Design and finally taking the plunge to work full-time on his wildlife & wilderness paintings 18 years ago. Meticulous observation and research have always been a priority for Paul, taking him to many beautiful and remote areas of the world: from watching tigers in India, camping in the wild to see the dramatic wildlife of East Africa and searching for snow leopards in the Himalaya. Paul has received considerable public recognition through exhibitions nationally. Paul has over 90 limited-edition prints. Six of his bird paintings have been chosen by the RSPB for prints and the RNLI has also used the artist’s bird paintings for calendars. He has also worked on international-selling art books for a top London publisher. Through his work, Paul is able to contribute towards animal and environmental conservation.
TRAVELS IN 2015:
Paul Dyson travelled to Okavango Delta in Botswana last year for a spectacular wildlife trip to see Leopards, Cheetahs, Lions, Elephants and amazing bird life.
In November, he attempted to climb Mera Peak in the Nepalese Himalaya at 21,250 ft (6,500m), but due to weather conditions, had to turn back within 250ft of the peak.
The artist also travelled Yorkshire to RSPB’s Bempton Cliffs to observe seabirds, and also Hatfield Moors in search of Adders and Grass Snakes.
TRAVELS PLANNED FOR 2016 AND 2017:
This year, Paul Dyson will be visiting Dingle in Ireland, Aberdovey Valley in Wales for bird-watching.
His plans also include a trip to Borneo and an attempt to climb the highest mountain in Mongolia.
His favourite haunts will also be on the list – Minsmere RSPB Reserve and Attenborough Nature Reserve (Wildlife Trust).
