Lake of Bays, Ontario, Canada
Paul Crosby was taught to be a maker and artist by his father, John Crosby, and has continued on this path to build an interesting and reputable career.
Paul divides his time between creating interpretive material for museums, such as concepts, scale models, authentic replications of historical material, dioramas, and murals. He has been commissioned for many wildlife and landscape paintings and his work can be seen in museums and private collections from Ottawa to Lisbon.
Paul works in a wide range of media from wood, metal, and clay, to digital creations. He loves anything that transforms imagination and ideas into tangible tools for education and enjoyment.
Though he lives in the Township of Lake of Bays, he has worked with the Cree Nation of Chisasibi Cultural Centre team in northern Quebec for over ten years, creating, rendering, and implementing their exhibit content from digital concept to reality. He is always open to taking on new projects.
