Paul Ansell

Senior Lecturer

Department of Art and Music

Paul Ansell


Paul has worked freelance as a photojournalist and graphic designer for a local newspaper and a range of commercial clients - everything from documenting a football stadium’s construction, to bouncing around on a RIB on the Solent, for corporate events and PR content.

A full-time teaching position at Solent currently allows Paul to pass on and help students grasp the myriad creative and technical skills he has acquired.

With a raft of qualifications under his belt, Paul has most recently achieved the status of Senior Fellow (SFHEA), drawing upon his previous course leader experience and oversight of apprenticeship provisions.
