The Wellington Chamber of Commerce recently held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Tru Art Studios in Wellington. Anthony Paul is the director/owner of the business with the help of his wife Cheryl. If you are looking for a unique, memorable piece of artwork to hang on your wall or to give as a gift, Tru Art Studios is the place to contact.
Paul was born and raised in Rockland County, N.Y. After graduating from college, he worked at Lederle Laboratories, where he was part of the Centrum Vitamin team. He started as a tablet press mechanic and worked his way up. He helped build an industry standard machine to deliver vitamins to the market. He was also on a creative team developing shapes for the Sea World character vitamins.
After 15 years in the pharmaceutical industry, Paul went into the music entertainment industry. For 10 years, he worked with various artists and consulted on projects, including one for Alicia Keys.
In 2007, Paul and his wife moved to West Palm Beach, and then later to Wellington. Seeking to make a change in their lives, they wanted to work with local artists. Being a photographer, Paul wanted to turn his photos into paintings. “We had a lot of photos we transferred into paintings, and that’s when I started to love what I was doing,” he said. “I’ve been doing it now for five years.”
Tru Art Studios currently works with about six local artists.
Paul said that Tru Art Studios’ clientele is mostly homeowners who like to decorate their homes. They focus on converting photos of horses, pets, self portraits and family shots into paintings. Paul noted that they can turn anything a client wants into art.
In addition, Tru Art Studios produces a finished product. Paul stretches and frames all the artwork so when he delivers the art, it’s ready to be hung on the wall — all for competitive prices.
