Paul Nabuurs has been a painter his whole life. Even before he met his first mentor (his high school art teacher Mr. John Blaise) he was always creating. Once he was exposed to the world of art and the fundamentals of colour, shape, pattern and texture he was hooked. After high school, Paul attended OCAD in Toronto. Here he furthered his love of painting and began to find his own voice. His love of nature and the Canadian landscape has developed into a vision that he strives to convey to the viewer with bold colour and strong imagery.
"Paul Nabuurs is the most helpful, sensitive, inspiring artist instructor. He was able to guide the class with specific directions and demonstration while encouraging everyone to embrace their own style. Paul worked at a good pace accomplishing a great deal in the day, allowing us all to leave with completed paintings."
"Excellent instructor .....provided valuable information, helpful, friendly, even though it was step by step I was thrilled with what I learned."
