Paul Lipp is a New Haven, Connecticut, artist working in the classic realist tradition. His paintings reflect trips throughout the small towns and boroughs of New England. Born in 1937 in West Haven, CT, Paul served 3 years in the Marine Corps, after which he attended Paier School of Art in Hamden, CT. He graduated as valedictorian of his class and was invited back for a fifth-year scholarship in advanced illustration. Paier immediately recruited the talented young student to become an assistant professor. Paul taught art for 18 years while pursuing his own fine art skills and accepting private commissions from such leading publications as Golf Digest and PGA magazine. He has exhibited his work in major shows at the Connecticut Academy, Springfield Museum, Mystic Maritime Gallery, Quinnipiac University and the Lyme Art Association, to name a few. He has received awards from the National Society of Illustrators, the Benedictine Fine Arts Competition and the Mount Carmel Art Association.
