Paul G. Oxborough – (b. 1965) American, began his studies at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design before entering a four-year apprenticeship at the Atelier Lessuer; a rigorous program that adheres to a stringent French academic tradition. Since his first New York exhibition in 2000, Mr. Oxborough has been the subject of numerous articles and reviews in such publications as ArtNews, Art & Antiques, Southwest Art, and CNN. His awards include First Place in the Artist's Magazine Portrait Competition, several Awards of Excellence from Communication Arts magazine and the President's Award from the American Society of Portrait Artists. He frequently travels with his family throughout Europe and the United States for inspiration. The range of Mr. Oxborough's subject matter seems unlimited and varies from intimate interiors illuminated by flickering candles to laconic landscapes drenched in the noonday sun to a child's face touched by the first rays of morning light.
