Paul Nixon lives in McLeansville, North Carolina. Thirty-six years ago, he left a loving family and friends behind in Ireland to seek out his own path in life in New York. He has worked in the auto-repair industry for about thirty years, and then twenty-one years ago a miracle occurred that changed the course of his life in a profound way. Today he is a professional artist/sculptor working with a wide range of materials. One of his first public bronze sculptures was in answer to 911, when he created a life-size, fully equipped firefighter with two children for the Greensboro Fire Department. He also creates liturgical art and furnishings as well as bishops’ croziers for churches all over the USA. He owes it all to God and the wonderful journey He put him on and its effect on those he worked for. www.paulnixonart.com.
