Artworks - Paul Broomfield

Paul BroomfieldBorn in the fishing village of Emsworth, Hampshire in 1969, Paul's interest and fascination in the ocean and natural history, taxidermy and curiosities grew from an early age.  One of his greatest influences was his grandfather who was an eel fisherman and naive painter. Originally trained as a cabinet maker, Paul began a carving & gilding apprenticeship with David Goodman, the fine art framer and paintings conservator. Framing art works by David Hockney, Paul Nash, Renoir, Dali, Kandinsky, to name but a few, along with pieces for the Tate Gallery, the V&A, the National Gallery and numerous private galleries and collections. For a decade, working as a freelance conservator, Paul meticulously restored and conserved many historical and important pieces from numerous National Trust and English Heritage properties, including Osterley Park, Uppark House and Buckingham Palace. In 2001 Paul moved to South West France where he spent several years sourcing unusual antique decorative objects at markets & brocantes for his assemblage work, selling to dealers and collectors in England. As an avid collector himself, his attention to detail, expertise in traditional gilding and framing techniques and taxidermy skills combine to create his ethereal and magical assemblage boxes. The taxidermy used in Paul’s work are mostly vintage pieces. Any new pieces are legally obtained. Returning from France in 2007 Paul now lives and works in North Devon near the sea, surfing and fishing. In Search of Lost Time…..
