One of the most popular nostalgia artists in the U.S., Paul Landry was born on the coast of Canada, in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The grandson of two sea captains (one Scottish, the other French), it is inevitable that he, too, turn to the sea as he grew older, working with fishermen on the banks of Nova Scotia and helping them pull up their nets and traps. Never far away were his sketchpad and camera."I believe that you have to know your subject to paint it well," he says. "Spending time on the sea has allowed me to know it's many moods".

By the time Landry was seventeen, he had gained apprentice status as a photoengraver. He started working his way through the Nova Scotia College of Art and also attended the Art Students League in New York City.

Landry settled in Connecticut, where he taught at Westport's Famous Artists School and wrote the popular textbook on Drawing and Painting. He still lives near the shore, enjoying the company of his wife and three children. His other interests include sports car racing, gardening and golfing.

Landry's paintings have a loyal and growing audience because they celebrate the spirit of life and bring back memories of halcyon days.
