Living in close proximity to Lily Dale, NY. and
Cassadaga Lake, he will often retreat there to energize
in its natural unassuming beauty, and receive what he
considers to be the direct inspiration of 'Angels'. " In
my opinion, an 'Angel' can be anything in the shape of
a gift or blessing i.e. an inspiring thought, an
unexpected smile, even an innocent child's point of
view. Far too many people think of angels in the sense
of a wispy apparition, and thus will put a limit on their
daily observations. My art is always an interpretation
of my ongoing Angel Encounters."
Rarely does one find a combination of eclectic and
superb artistic quality in the works of one artist with
so many years of experience. William Paul is a
twenty-first century Renaissance artist, following his
muses in a myriad of colorful and exquisite avenues.
His paintings, all infused with an inner light and
mystical glow, are a tribute to his talent and esoteric
studies. His stone and wood sculptures are powerful
and smoothly rendered with both flow and design. He
has the innate ability to avoid the entrapments of
eruditic art and pretense, as demonstrated in his
collection of 'published' whimsical newspaper
cartoons. All of William Paul's works are avidly sought
by corporate and private collectors alike.
Another very disparate art project included the (single
handed) creation of his very
own gem mining town. "The Town Of Dry Gulch" was
a major regional attraction for School Field Trips,
Private Events, and Tourist Groups. Seasonal
attendance had grown to a average of six thousand
children before retiring The Gem Mine after thirty
|As a departure from most of today's professional artists... I developed natural drawing skills at an
early age, and decided never to be swayed by the traditional erudites of art education. In short, I
dance to my own drummer. I opt for the non-pretentious beauty of that which touches my soul.
My art precept is simple... "Everything in life is a challenge. View it this way and it's pan
bread, view it that way, and it's sourdough... Just make it work!"
William Paul Marlette has been selling his art for over forty years. His
credo from the beginning: "An Artist should be without limitations". And
it shows in his diverse selections of: Acrylics, Oil Pastels, Air Brush, Chalks,
Conte', Leads, Stone Sculptings, Gem and Mineral Cutting, Carvings/Relief,
Carvings/Sculptings... and even his published newspaper cartoons, and
Childrens Book Illustrations!
