“Every purpose has a story”
Paul Ernest is a Visual Storyteller like you may have never seen before. His tagline is “Every Soul Has a Purpose and Every Purpose Has a Story”. That my friends is deep, and it is the perfect description of his approach to his art.
Paul began his career in advertising design, after receiving his BFA at the University of North Texas. Having been brought up in a family of fine artists and writers, he decided to pursue his love of photography and storytelling imagery. Experimenting with a style combining composite photography with visually tactile elements and a warm color palette, Paul creates art that not only has a story, but is visually complex. Combining his passion for storytelling, Paul released his first image entitled “Chasing Butterflies” in 2009, and since then Paul has gone on to create numerous collections telling stories of healing, growth and inspiration.
“We live through stories… stories that are handed down to us through seasons and generations. We are inspired by stories and live to write our own narrative and our own contribution of life to tell.” –Paul Ernest
