As an art consultant, his clients include H&R Block, the Kansas City Chiefs, the Mayo Clinic, Texas A&M, and 1000s of private collectors. In the case of corporations, hospitals and stadiums, he designs unique art programs that win national praise for their vision, originality and community impact. He excels at bringing together the right team for every project. Paul also founded the Leopold Gallery Educational Foundation to provide opportunities for teenage artists from urban areas. He is the author of the acclaimed guidebook for artists, Living the Artist’s Life.
Paul and his wife, Annie, raised their sons in Kansas City, where he was a youth baseball coach for eight seasons. He has spent decades roaming America by motorcycle, riding through every contiguous state. Paul has lived in Alaska, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Italy, and England, and attempts to surf every time he visits California.
