Paul Walsh

Paul Walsh

My name is Paul Joseph Walsh and I was raised in Newington CT. I had an inherent artist interest and began painting at an early age. I was encouraged by family and art teachers to continue to expand my artistic ability. I also had an interest in firefighting at an early age. I joined the fire service as a volunteer in 1979. After serving 5 years, my love for firefighting transitioned to a career with the City of New Britain Fire Department (NBFD). I’m currently a Deputy Chief with NBFD and a third generation firefighter. I attended Central Connecticut State University for graphic arts and Hartford State Technical College for fire science.
I was inspired by a friend and New York City Firefighter/Artist John Goss to paint firefighting as my subject matter. At that point I combined firefighting and art. 
My most honored works was designing the concept for the Connecticut Fallen Firefighters’ Memorial and the 9/11 Memorial at the CT State Fire Academy in Windsor Locks, CT.  The Memorial took 4 years to complete with a cost of over $350,000. 
I reside in Kensington, CT with my wife.
