Paul Carbo's wood cabinets are functional conversation pieces. He crafts each cabinet individually in the likeness of a famous personality or character. He was born Feb. 10, 1955 in Baltimore, Maryland. He grew up one of eight children and went to school through college in the Baltimore area. After school, he worked in a commercial art studio before getting a job as a graphic artist/illustrator at the Baltimore News American in 1979. In 1983, he moved out west to take a job at the Reno Gazette Journal 1983 then onto the Orange County Register in Southern California in 1987 and the Los Angeles Times from 1998 to 2000. The turning point in Paul's life, as an artist, was when his father passed away. At that juncture, Paul decided to move back to Maryland, say goodbye to the graphic art biz and start a new career making custom furniture in the likeness of famous people, an idea that had been brewing in his head for quite some time. His work gained immediate acceptance for its uniqueness, creativity and whimsy. The fact that all his pieces are functional furniture satisfied the pragmatists as well. He and his wife, Nancy, now live on a 154 acre farm in the hills of West Virginia where they tend to their horses, highlander cattle, sheep and a pig named Ghoulie. On the property is a well equipped studio/woodshop which serves as the birthing center for the wood people sculptures he so cleverly creates in the genius of a modern day Norman Rockwell.
