"Painting With Light" Studio & Gallery
Photo-Paintings by Paul J. McCloskey

Graphic Artist, Photographer & Printmaker

Born and raised in Boston, MA., Paul has been living on the Central Coast for the past 5 years after many years in the San Francisco Bay Area. “I used to escape the madness & congestion of the Bay Area by jumping in my car and driving down the Big Sur Coast, and onto San Luis Obispo.” He is a graphic artist, photographer & printmaker, (somewhat of a "digital alchemist" ) and likes to think of his art/work as "Painting With Light". “I am attempting to portray and communicate not only the breathtaking beauty in nature, but also the ambiance and spirit of it using natural light to help "paint" my images... in camera & darkroom. He refers to his creative technique as “Photo-Painting”, which he considers to be a convergence of today’s digital photography/imaging technology with traditional printmaking, and plain aire art .... it's ALL about light.”

“A New Vision of the Central Coast… And Beyond” is a collection of landscapes, seascapes, coastalscapes, dunescapes, vineyardscapes, and of course the magnificent backroads w/the old barns, farm houses, and ranches. Paul likes to refer to these images as “windows” to the Central Coast, which offers a rather unique perspective of familiar scenes form his eyes. * A portion of sales goes to helping the cause @ The Sierra Cub.*

Different Strokes

"Creating new art forms is not something that happens often, and being an original photographer in a world where millions of people have a camera attached to their phone is a challenge. But that isn’t stopping Paul McCloskey from doing something you don’t see every day...."
