Graduating in 1987 from Maidstone College of Art, with a Fine Arts BA (Hons) Degree Paul Talbot entered the world of teaching after gaining a PGCE at Bretton Hall, where he met his future wife, Jo. His role as art teacher rapidly developed to Head of Department, then Head of Faculty, to becoming an Advanced Skills Teacher and finally to the role of Deputy Head at a Special Needs School, Head of Sixth Form which meant that there was little time for creating his own artwork.
Currently he is working as an art teacher and will embark on a new adventure in Yorkshire, starting at a school in September
His other interests, apart from art and painting are: following QPR (a season ticket holder for many years); being involved in Rugby – previously Pinner RFC and Fullerians, Music – Paul Talbot manages Indie Rock band ThreeStreets and the usual reading, cooking (it’s safer!) and comedy.
He has exhibited at the Affordable Art Show, Sesame Gallery and The Linda Blackstone Gallery, EtzChayim Gallery including two one-man shows; selling both nationally and internationally.
Currently Paul Talbot undertakes commissions ranging from wedding artwork, portraits and the ‘very special paintings’. The small corner in his garage is the current working space to be creative.
