Timothy Hawkins Gallery is delighted to welcome artist Paul Thomas to Church Street in Hereford.

Paul was born and bred in Herefordshire, but lived for 10 years in California, and spent most of his working life as a floor and wall tiler specialising in Victorian, Jacobean and natural stone floors.

A love affair with motorcycles led to a top ten place in European motorcycle racing in his late 40s, and, on retirement, he started making human-powered vehicles from old bicycles. This led, in turn, to Paul making art works of scrap metal - and he now designs and creates clocks, interior sculptures and garden pieces - all created from recycled tools, engines and any steel he can get his hands on.

Paul's extraordinary metal creations will feature prominently in the front of the gallery for the next couple of weeks, alongside those of the gallery's other skilled metalwork artists - Andrew Findlay; Simon Meiklejohn; Philip Hearsey; Jenny Pickford; Samuel Snelling; Daniel Johnson; Nadine Angela and Naomi Neville.
