Welcome and thanks for dropping by.
My name is Paul Butterworth and I'm a Diploma level BA (Hons) Painting Degree student with the University for the Creative Arts, Open College of the Arts . For my day job I'm a TV/film actor and supply teacher.
Sunlight through Cherry Tree Leaves, oil on canvas, 60 H x 60 W x 4.3 D cm, 2019
I love colour, beauty, emotion, magical narrative worlds (like Peter Doig's work) and am fascinated by the boundary between representational and abstract painting. My favourite artist's are Matisse, Van Gogh and The Nabis .
You might have seen me in the Full Monty as Barry, numerous TV shows in the '80s and '90s and recently on a guest lead on Holby, Doctors, a cameo on Coronation Street and I've just filmed a part on a big TV drama to be released in 2020 but they haven't released casting yet. Have a look at my IMDB page , showreel, and website for more information.
