Paul Dorrell is a published writer and art consultant who founded Leopold Gallery in 1991. As an art consultant, his clients include Marvel Studios, Warner Brothers, H&R Block, the Kansas City Chiefs, the Mayo Clinic, the Kansas City Royals, Texas A&M, and 1000s of private collectors. In the case of corporations and stadiums, he collaborates with artists in designing art programs specific to each client. Many of these, such as those for Arrowhead Stadium and University of Kansas Hospital, have earned national praise.
Paul founded the Leopold Gallery Educational Foundation in 2006, a mentoring program which underwrites financially strapped schools in the inner city. He is the author of the acclaimed guidebook, Living the Artist’s Life, which has been utilized by artists around the world. His latest novel, Cool Nation, is currently making the rounds in New York.
Paul and his wife, Annie, raised their sons in Kansas City, where he was a youth baseball coach, tireless prankster, and frequent sojourner to the Rockies with his family. He has spent decades roaming America by motorcycle, riding through every contiguous state. Paul has lived in Alaska, New York, Seattle, Los Angeles, Italy, and England. He surfs every time he visits California—though admits that falling off the board is an unfortunate part of his style.
