Paul Needles has had a distinguished career culminating with his appointment in 2002 as Director of the Arts College when The Castle School in Thornbury gained specialist schools status in Visual Arts.

Prior to this appointment he was head of the Creative Faculty at The Castle School with oversight of all forms of art - including music, dance and drama - and the craft design technology department. Under his guidance Expressive Arts became a faculty with him at the head.

Throughout his teaching career Paul continued to practise his art in all forms and exhibited his paintings in various exhibitions, including several individual exhibitions. He retired from The Castle in December 2006.

Retirement has brought more time to paint and has given Paul the time and space to expand his print making experience. Where much of his painting is of landscape, his printmaking has given Paul the opportunity to do more figurative work - in his preferred medium of lino cuts.

Much of Paul's inspiration for his paintings comes from the local landscape in the south of England and from his holidays in France and Spain. Paul now works in a small studio at his home in south Bristol.
