This site is an extension of my fine art studio. As a working artist and marketing pro, I have the honor of working with artists, luminaries and experts in fine art, graphics, video, film, photography and Web design. I meet individuals who constantly are pushing the limits of creative media. Gary-Paul.com is a repository for all things that cross my path while navigating the planet and all urges I have to share my observations of the world. I hope that you will find things here that inspire, motivate and teach you about your creativity.
