Wadsworth was born in Great Yarmouth, and undertook his art studies at Ipswich College of Arts (Art and Design) and then at Falmouth College of Art (Fine Art).

Paul's work is well represented on the web, where images of his paintings are available. He has exhibited extensively and travelled widely (especially in the Middle East)  to produce an impressive body of work. Paul works from studios in Trewidden Gardens, Penzance and Porthtowan, and paints abstracted images from the landscape and seascape around him.

He teaches the three-day Expressive Painting course at the Newlyn School of Art in Chywoone Hill, Newlyn, and is also a tutor on the School's weekly Life Drawing evening sessions.
