"I won the genetic lottery."

The Artistry of Paul Hookham

 This art is for those people who believe taking a calculated risk and  finding things out for themselves is important.

 BACKGROUND 

 Strong Danish roots with a family history of self reliance and curiosity. 

 There's also a list of personalities with a focused and innovative way of thinking. The    creative path I discovered turned into a well spring of original thoughts and melodies. I just responded honestly to what I found. 

  Over time the vision became stronger and my confidence grew with it resulting in a  body of work that not only surpasses my ambitions but also my imagination. 

 Growing up in the fifties and sixties was perfect for a kids imagination because we    had to rely on it to entertain ourselves. Lying on my back staring up at a blue sky with drifting white clouds I would convince  myself the sky was the ocean and I was above the clouds! Boom! my first shots of adrenaline! I didn't  know then but the rush would lead me to many adventures with people who inspired me to seek out  my potential. 

 Some of the greatest challenges didn't come from the mountains or the fire ground  but as an elder it pleases me now to know that life did not change 

 who I am.

 The mid sixties came at the same time as my need    for  independence and the music that changed    everyone's life was leading the way. There was 

 also an awakening to the fact that the  world 

 wasn't  always just or fair. 

  IN THE YEAR I GRADUATED ALICE COOPER  SANG,    "SCHOOL'S OUT FOR EVER" AND HENDRIX SLAMMED 
   IT DOWN HARDER THAN ANYONE.
