Paul Patrick McCabe was born in Dublin, Ireland. His father Mick, an amateur landscape artist encouraged Paul to paint from an early age. Paul attended The National College of Art and Design in Dublin, where he studied under the renowned painter Trevor Geoghegan.
While his initial choice of subject matter mainly focused on the Irish landscape in recent years he has concentrated on Cityscapes, in particular on his native city Dublin.
His works have made their way throughout Ireland, the UK, Australia and the United States.
