Artist’s Statement

I have been creating art since I was a child. Now, after a career in high tech, I am finally able to enjoy making art full-time. I rely on my life experience and my natural curiosity to create my art in a variety of mediums including acrylic, watercolor, ink, pencil, paper, clay, and wood. I enjoy taking raw, found, and unused material and transforming it into something new that other people find interesting, beautiful, or inspiring in some way.

Using color, line, form, and volume I attempt to interpret the beauty and meaning of our existence with my work. I spend a lot of time just thinking about an idea. Rolling it around in my head, changing it, and determining how it should be made. The physical realization of those ideas and concepts fulfills my desire to create.

Artist’s Biography

Paul Foote was born in Tampa, Florida when kids went outside to play and most TV’s were still black and white. Along the way he married his beautiful and talented wife, Colleen, and helped raise two sons. His path through life has given him a loving family, friends, hopefully some wisdom, and far too many earthly possessions which he & Colleen are in the process of paring down.
