Paul F Walker was born in the 1960's in England where as a child he discovered his love for art and learning. After completing an uneventful schooling he left school at 15 and the following year enrolled on a foundation course at Walsall art college. after successfully completing this course he trained in graphic communication where he specialized in illustration gaining a distinction in his subject. Afterwards, he moved into adult education where he taught fine art, photography, digital imaging, animation and illustration. 

During his teaching career he has studied the traditional methods of creating art and has made a lifelong commitment to studying art techniques. He now teaches traditional methods in painting and he has given lectures in armour and weapons as an historical interpreter for English Heritage, and various other groups, specializing in the development of armour as well as the chivalric roles of the medieval Knight. He has a lifelong interest in historical warfare and its politics, which played a huge role in the evolution of military advancement.

He has an extensive library of images and paintings of effigies and armour that he has created over the past 30 years.

In 2014 Paul retired from teaching and unfortunately had to reduced the amount of artwork he does due to ill health, but he still enjoys sharing his knowledge on painting, armour and history. 

His dog is named Spongie.
