ABOUT PAUL DYSON – HIS WORK AND TRAVELS:
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 22 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.
From his travels abroad and in the UK, he has produced over 90 limited-edition prints of some of the world’s most popular wildlife. He has worked on international-selling art books for a top London publisher, and has had his bird paintings featured in a RNLI calendar. Through his work, Paul is able to contribute towards animal and environmental conservation.
PAUL DYSON AND THE RSPB:
In 2016, RSPB chose 13 of Paul Dyson’s images to be reproduced for prints and other merchandise for its online shop. The merchandise has been popular with visitors to the website, resulting in successful sales of these items.

Madagascar: Paul visited Madagascar last year to see the spectacular endemic species, including the highly endangered Lemurs.
Later in the year he visited the Isle of Arran to observe Otters, Golden Eagles and Hen Harriers.
TRAVELS PLANNED FOR 2019:
Visiting different locations in the UK and the world provides exciting new references for his paintings.
He will be travelling to Majorca for bird-watching, climbing Gondogoro Peak in Pakistan – a remote area where signs of Snow Leopards are regularly found. He is also travelling to Costa Rica to see the exotic wildlife.
His UK travels to search for British wildlife will include locations in Scotland, Wales, Derbyshie, Suffolk and his local area in Nottinghamshire
