Paul is a descendant of the Yidinji tribe in Far North Queensland, Australia who occupied the fertile rainforest lands from Cairns in the north to Babinda in the south and west into the Atherton Tablelands as far as Kairi. His ancestral history is rooted in this region. His grandmother taught him stories and legends about the rainforest – its bush food, animals, young warriors and special places such as Babinda Boulders and the Gordonvale Pyramid. These stories are the inspiration to a lot of his work. He incorporates traditional designs with modern techniques in his art, and each design has a spiritual meaning. Traditionally every design had a different meaning associated with totems or inspired by legends.
