After studying fine art at NCAD, Paul Christopher Flynn spent twenty years in business in the United States and Asia. In 2003, he returned to Ireland where he began painting for the first time in twenty years. What began as a hobby had by 2005 become a full time career as painter.
Paul’s work is represented in high profile civic, corporate and private collections worldwide. He has held exhibitions as far afield as Beijing and Los Angeles and he has completed many large scale commissions, including most recently over 200 large canvasses for a corporate client.
For most of his art career, Paul has managed without agents or galleries, instead using the experience and techniques gained in a twenty year career in one of the most high pressure sales businesses in the world to develop a successful art practice.

Seminar concept
