Living in Southport, UK Paul Lofthouse creates both sculptures, using materials as diverse as metal, clay, concrete and stone, as well as exquisite paintings.
Paul has travelled extensively and being a young seaman he visited many exotic places around the world which appears to have influenced his vibrant hue usage and energetic application process.
Born in 1941, ...Paul Lofthouse is not new to art and has exhibited in the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool; the Royal Cambrian Academy, Wales and The Atkinson Art Gallery, Southport. Now Lofthouse is involved with several organisations promoting art to children and young people in the North West of England, in addition to being involved with workshops at John Moore’s University, Liverpool.
He finds great pleasure in painting outdoors and his most recent work has involved landscapes, dance and sport-inspired figurative shapes.
