Paul Dykman is an artist with a vast subject range. He can best be described as a classically trained artist with the talent and ability to capture feeling. Paul was raised in a family of professional artists and in keeping with the Dykman tradition, was encouraged to draw and paint from an early age. He was instructed in art technique from his father and grandfather and also credits outstanding instruction from workshops in South Africa. He sold his first painting at a joint exhibition with his father at the Royal Agriculture Show in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa at the age of thirteen. This was the first of many joint exhibitions. He later went on to be represented by numerous galleries in South Africa. In 1995 he and his family moved to the States to further his artistic exposure. He has exhibited at the Arts for the Parks Exhibition in 2003 and 2004 and the Charles Russell Auction in 2007 and 2008.
