Paul is a published author and art consultant who founded Leopold Gallery in 1991. His clients include Marvel Studios, Warner Brothers, H&R Block, the Kansas City Chiefs, Disney World, 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 program which helps guide teenagers from the inner city into college, and raises funds for financially strapped schools. He is the author of the acclaimed guidebook for artists, Living the Artist’s Life. 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 and Grand Canyon. 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—or tries to.
