Paul Dorrell founded Leopold Gallery in 1991 to represent regional artists. Prior to that he worked as Director’s Assistant at the Hill-Stead Museum of French Impressionism in Farmington, CT.
As an art consultant, Dorrell’s clients include Warner Brothers, H&R Block, the Royals, the Mayo Clinic, Saint Luke’s Hospital, and 1000s of private, civic and corporate collectors. He consulted on a monument of Dwight D. Eisenhower for the Capitol Building in Washington, DC, and for the National D-Day Memorial in Virginia. In his spare time, Dorrell structures mentoring programs that provide opportunity for inner-city teenage artists.
Reared in Kansas City, Dorrell has spent years roaming America by motorcycle, riding through every contiguous state. He has lived in Alaska, New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, Italy, England-and Prairie Village.
Dorrell is also the author of Living the Artist’s Life. This acclaimed guidebook for artists took him on a tour of 60 cities, where he won praise for his talks at venues such as The Art Students League of New York and bookstores nationwide. He has been interviewed on 35 National Public Radio affiliates and on NBC. His follow-up to this work is Living the Artist’s Life, Revised. More can be learned on Paul’s blog.
