After a satisfying career as a middle-school educator ending in Dalton, Georgia, Paul Fontana picked up a paintbrush, intending to entertain himself only. In 2007, he began selling his work at the Dalton Market. He went on to Chattanooga and then Atlanta. Now, seven years and hundreds of paintings later, he considers himself a full-time artist and Paul Fontana's "Traveling Art Show" can be found in Indiana, Florida and all points in between.
Paul says, "Though I began painting realistically, I felt that my real calling was expressing myself more through color than form. I consider myself a colorist, in that it is my focus when painting. How one color looks when it is next to another, and how it complements or contrasts are all areas of his exploration. Most of my work is red, though that's not a color I wear or drive.”
