Paul Swailes

Modern seascape paintings, prints and painted objects

Paul is a local artist who enjoys making images celebrating our area. 

A regular part of Art Trail, he works largely in acrylic and mixed media and is well known locally due to exhibitions, regular appearances at local Art and Craft markets and being part of FortyThree, the Artisans Co-operative shop on Fore Street. 
For the past twenty five years he has also illustrated the Berrynarbor magazine.

When he retired from teaching he said “Now I have more time to devote to painting I intend to focus on our natural landscape, especially big seas and even bigger skies which have always fascinated me.”  He did not have far to look for inspiration and has now put together seven collections of original paintings and limited edition prints based on our local environment.   

His eighth collection entitled “Storm at Sea” which will feature at Art Trail 2018 once again sees him turn to the ever-changing the North Devon coast and its rich maritime history as a starting point.
