Paul was originally trained in ceramics and lithography at Stourbridge College of Art and while pursuing his career as a teacher, in which he was Head of Art and Design at Shenley Court School for thirty years, he established a pottery workshop at home, exhibiting and selling work in various outlets.
In 1984 he attended an NSEAD print weekend at Westhill College where Michael Rothenstein was the keynote speaker. From that point on he has been a Printmaker, initially producing woodcuts, but after a few becoming interested in experimental ways of creating images with collagraph and developing ways of combining print techniques such as relief prints and monopoint, collagraph and woodcut and photo-silk screen with collagraph. Several years ago Paul was one of a group of RBSA artists who put together an exhibition entitled 'Black Country Visions', which was first shown at the RBSA Gallery and subsequently at Dudley and Wednesbury Municipal Art galleries. Paul regularly teaches print workshops to school and adult groups. In 2005 he was awarded the Addenda Prize in the RBSA Prize Exhibition. In 2006 he was awarded the Tregoning Prize at the Derby City Open. Paul has exhibited his work widely and in 2010 a piece of his work was selected for the 'Originals' print exhibition at London's Mall Gallery. Paul was elected as a Member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in 2001 where his work can be regularly seen. He has been the Hon. Curator of the RBSA Gallery since 2001 where he is responsible for the exhibition calendar and the staging of exhibitions.

Paul Hipkiss's latest works include industrial scenes and architecture, which stems from his Black Country roots.
His works mainly consist of relief prints, with blocks of colour applied by a soft roller through paper stencils. Paul also creates relief prints, often showing scenes of factories or engine houses and most recently he has produced a series of these looking at canals in the Midlands. In 1984 he attended a print weekend at Westhill College where Michael Rothenstein was the keynote speaker. From that point on he has been a Printmaker, initially producing woodcuts, but after a few years becoming interested in more experimental ways of creating images such as collagraph and developing ways of combining print techniques such as relief prints and monoprint, collagraph and Woodcut and photo-silk screen with collagraph. Paul has exhibited his work widely and has notably been selected for the 'Originals' print exhibition at London's Mall Galleries and was awarded the Tregoning Prize at the Derby City Open. Paul was elected as a member of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists in 2001 and has since been their honorary curator.

Obituary - Paul Hipkiss
Paul Hipkiss was a committed educationalist and artist. Born in 1940, he trained at Stourbridge Art College majoring in Pottery and Lithography. He started teaching in Birmingham, when he was 20. He soon realised that he would benefit from a teaching qualification and took a year out to do his ATD. Paul was a passionate supporter of comprehensive education and was pleased when he was able to secure a post at Shenley Court School, Birmingham, shortly after it was opened. He later became Head of the art department, where he remained until his retirement sixteen years ago. As a head of department he enabled the staff to blossom, he encouraged us all to have our own interests and was a great believer in trying new things. When I wanted to take the students away to Wales for weekend drawing residentials, he supported me and for many years. The trips to Corris, with Paul, were a rich source of inspiration for GCSE and A-level students portfolios. He also coached a rugby team at the school until the strike which changed teaching and extra curricular work forever. Being told by the union that he could not run clubs caused him to leave the union and join NSEAD. He said that in one month he got more back in terms of subject than in all the previous years he had been teaching. Paul and I became joint Midland secretaries of NSEAD under the chairmanship of Arthur Hughes and Lesley Hopkins. Schools started working together and Shenley Art department worked with four primary schools to present an exhibition called Growth of an Idea, it was Paul's firm belief that the idea of growth would drive the work and it proved to be so. From that moment Paul became a committed printmaker. Paul was elected to membership of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists (following his father) and to the Art Circle, Easel Club and the Dudley Society of Artists. After his retirement from teaching at sixty one, he became Hon Curator of the RBSA, he worked tirelessly for the society adding a caring thoughtful contribution at council meetings. He was keen to encourage new associates and the friends of the RBSA and he always gave of his time freely. Paul was also on the committee which helped to design & redesign the Edexel GCSE examination paper. Paul was becoming well known as a printmaker and his lino cuts were selected for exhibitions all over the country including the Royal Academy Summer Show. His workshops were meticulously planned and he demonstrated the best practice in art education in that he allowed the students to do more than they thought they could, by valuing the ideas they had. Paul was always pleased to read the NSEAD newsletters and would often pick up on articles which they contained. All of this shows a person of energy and drive, but he also played rugby into his forties, was a keen MG enthusiast, restoring and repairing his own cars, edited the Dudley Society newsletter and sat on a number of committees. Paul leaves a wife, son and two grandchildren. Paul was an unassuming character who made a fantastic contribution to the community of Birmingham and the West Midlands and I am honoured to have had him as a friend.
