About Paul Haigh

Nerd culture and a 20 year career as a PhD chemist formed the original backbone of my inspiration. A business trip to the heart of face jug country, Edgefield, SC, further sparked my imagination and provided a much needed direction for my work.

However, even as mythology, folk horror, and the monsters of Dungeons and Dragons play out in my work, there is always an element of reverence for the face jug tradition, as well as respect for those that hold some of these symbols sacred. 

The challenge of realistic human portraiture, as well as the voice of each character referenced push me to sharpen my skills and to stretch my imagination.

I make all of my work from my home studio in central North Carolina, where I live with my amazing wife and four ludicrous little dogs.
