David Paulson

Biography

David Paulson was born in Providence, Rhode Island in 1955. He is an alumnus of the Swain School of Design and the Parson’s School of Design Graduate Program for Painting.  While at Parson’s, Paulson studied with Leland Bell and Paul Resika, both of whom were strongly influenced by Hans Hoffman’s work. Paulson’s work was also strongly influenced by David L. Smith, who was a student of Hoffman’s in the 50’s.

During his fifteen years in NYC, Paulson made hundreds of visits to view the great paintings housed in the City’s museums. He engaged exclusively in figurative painting.  He taught at the Swain School of Design, New York Studio School, Parson's School of Design, Sarah Lawrence College, New York Studio School, and IS183.

Eventually, the desire for a physical change from the campus of NYC led Paulson to the Hudson Valley region in 1994.  Paulson was awarded the Purchase Prize for Painting at the American Academy of Arts and Letters in 2014.
