Paul Buten Bio
Paul Buten lives and paints in Deep Cove, British Columbia. His recent focus on western landscapes and marinescapes comes through a fascination with the light and clouds integral to his daily environment and through his many forays into the coastal wilderness of British Columbia.
Paul Buten was born in Munich and raised in Benediktbeuern, a municipality in the district of Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen in Bavaria, Germany. Raised in this picturesque village in the mountains of Bavaria, he was tutored by his artist father as well as the regional painters and wood carvers that conducted local workshops.
