Paul Smith has extensive experience of delivering high quality map design and art work for environmental charities, local voluntary organisations, and education. Paul will be collaborating on the production of our Unofficial George Eliot Country map in addition to supporting art and design work across our public engagement material.
Paul is also a painter and his works explore place, memory, and the complex nature of post-industrial leisure spaces. You can visit his art portfolio here and see how that body of work enriches our research on this project as we explore colour, landscape, and the problematics of realism. A selection of recent paintings is below.
