Paul Healey was born in Toronto in 1964. As a teenager he studied jazz and classical guitar. He earned his diploma from Georgian College where he studied painting, printmaking, sculpture, and art history. Following that, he attended the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax and then moved to New Brunswick, where he continues to pursue his many creative endeavours, which in addition to his artistic pursuits, includes creative writing and writing original musical compositions. Healey has: won the Atlantic Writers’ Competition for short fiction; had a play work-shopped by Theatre New Brunswick; had short fiction published in Toronto’s Quarterly Literary Magazine; and received a nomination for the Christina Sabat Award for Arts Criticism.
Healey has shown in solo and group exhibitions across Canada and his work is represented in numerous galleries. His first solo exhibition in Vancouver created a demand for his work from Charlottetown to Vancouver that continues and grows. While managing to keep up with his gallery commitments, Healey still finds time to experiment and push his visual boundaries. He moves easily between print making, carving, and painting in his representative yet expressive approach to landscape and figurative work as well as still life and interior images. His work resides in collections in Europe, New Zealand, the United States and Canada.
Established in 1976, Gallery 78 represents artworks of established and emerging Atlantic Canadian artists.
