My name is Paul Carr. I am 43 years of age and currently in prison serving 4 and a half years. Whilst being here I have been attending art classes for the first time in my life which I enjoy very much, learning different techniques and trying to create my own art. Art has opened my imagination in ways that I didn’t understand before and with the help of my teacher, I hope this competition and on line gallery will bring me success in the art world.
This is the first time I have shown my work to the outside world. It will be interesting to get feed back on my work. Whilst being in prison, I have done many drawings for other inmates which I get a great deal of happiness from. I have never been paid for my work because I enjoy giving to others.
