self portrait

Paul Dessau, NCA Board Member 2018 and 2019

Paul’s artistry combines his Masters’s degree in mechanical engineering with studio art classes taken in college, thus using analytic as well as aesthetics to combine art traditions from the past and present in each piece. His education engineering as well as his lifelong love for art has made recycled art a natural pursuit. He has enjoyed doing artwork since his childhood in Carmichael, California, and now focuses his talents on using recycled materials to create portraits of both famous people and subjects chosen by his customers in a highly colorful and iconic manner.


Paul currently lives in the Sierra Foothills. When he is not creating collage art, he is indulging his passion in astronomy, building telescopes and musical instruments, and being actively involved in Toastmasters.
