Whether in the movie and TV industry related or the fine arts field, our Glenoaks Canyon neighborhood is home to a wide variety of talented and creative residents. Paul Chamberlain, a member of our GOCHA Board of Directors, and a canyon dweller since 1969, is an accomplished oil painter.
From Eagle Rock High School, Paul graduated from the prestigious Art Center College of Design. He then spent several years in Detroit until he moved back to warm, sunny Los Angeles where he pursued design in the Advertising field for many years.
Spurred on by a close friend and fellow artist, Paul rekindled his love for painting, picking up the brushes in 2004 and resuming his fine art career (after a 35 year hiatus). Many of Paul’s landscape subjects are from Glenoaks Canyon and the Pasadena Arroyo. “I love color…always have.” says Paul. “For me, it all starts with color and interesting subjects. I call my art 'Eclectic Impressionism.' I’m always amazed at the subjects I find to paint. I never know what’s coming next.”
These days you can find Paul showing his canvas creations at numerous Art Fairs and Exhibitions around the Foothill Communities as well as Arts & Antiques on Lake in Pasadena and the Segil Fine Art Gallery in Monrovia.
Paul is a member of the California Art Club and the Oil Painters of America. If you are interested in Paul’s art, check out his website (www.prcfineart.com) and drop him a line.
