About Me

A vicar's son raised in Yorkshire I trained as a drama teacher at the Central School of Speech and Drama, London from 1974-77. However, instead of teaching went straight into Northern TV and film. 

I was awarded 'Best cast in a movie' in 1997 by SAG for Playing Barry in The Full Monty.

November 2021, I've just finished filming Richard in the feature film 'Allelujah' starring Judi Dench. For more details click below.

When my son went to uni in 2016 I started a BA (Hons) Painting degree with the University for the Creative Arts - Open College of the Arts campus. The OCA is UCA's distance learning/part time campus. I qualified for my Dip HE Painting in December 2021 and am now in my 3rd year. 

If you'd like to see my paintings I built a 3D gallery on my art website: https://www.paulbutterworthartist.com/
