Paul began making candles with his drawings wrapped around the outside. The endeavor was a catalyst for sewing. It has since become Paul's firm belief that all of life’s questions can be answered with a sewing machine. What began as the notion of putting Art on shirts eventually evolved into the notion of making “patches”: Paul will interpret whatever you can describe using five words or less, and make a free-flowing embroidery design.
This opened a world of ideas. An odd family of characters emerged, like these abstract fish animal people who make up FishTown: there’s Mister Trout Pants, Octalottalipapus, Sea Moe, Fish Head, Squid Nose, Fish Mits, the Elephish, and many more sewing designs.
