Paul Kielty and Fair Acre Press’ editor, Nadia Kingsley, have been friends and colleagues for over 15 years.
Paul was educated in Ireland
He studied Animation at the University of Wolverhampton –
and that’s where they first met.
“It’s a close friendship – through ‘tick and tin’ – he has been there.
I have seen him on stage – excelling at both stand-up, and as singer song-writer & guitarist:
In fact if you are looking for a Top Ten Hit –
he has created some stunners in the time I have known him!” says Nadia.
He has been working for some time now on simplifying his art down to the most essential.
He is also extraordinarily good at Origami – tolerating comments such as “That’s just folding paper” and “I could do that if I learned how” as if he had learned patience from a sensei; teaches guitar; and runs workshops in origami and art.
He has been commissioned by Fair Acre Press to fill in any artwork gaps in the DIVERSIFLY/ Urban Bird Arts Council England-funded project which will culminate in a full-colour paperback book with new poetry and artwork – on everyday encounters with the birds of Britain’s towns and cities; and which will be available to buy from January 2018
Fair Acre Press is proud to be publishing his first book of cartoons in 2018
The Poetry on Frogs ebook is part of the Maligned Species project
