This biography from the Archives of AskART:

The following information was submitted in June of 2006 by art historian Michael R. Perez:

Paul M. Stotts was born in Orillia, Ontario, Canada in 1872. He spent much of his boyhood on the coast and became a splendid sailor. A hobby he continued to enjoy throughout his life. Many of his existing paintings are of marine scenes, reflecting his love of the water and boats. He studied art in Toronto, and sometime in the late 1890s, he traveled to the deep south of the United States where he met his wife, Margaret, whom he married in 1900. They lived in New Orleans for a couple of years where Paul Stotts studied interior decorating, and later moved to their permanent address in Memphis, Tennessee. In Memphis, he opened a studio in his home on Linden Street and worked as an artist and interior decorator for Steelbinder's, a prestigious interior decorating firm up until a year before his death.

During his lifetime Stotts traveled frequently. He traveled throughout the United States, Europe, Cuba, and Mexico, painting and selling his artwork as he went. He was known to have sold and exhibited his works in galleries in five countries during his long career. Stotts was primarily known as a painter and a designer, but, he was also a skilled craftsman. This was illustrated in a wide variety of items, ranging from intricately carved and rigged models of fine old sailing vessels to his custom furniture. He designed writing desks, rocking chairs, mirrors, and, even made his own wallpaper, as well as, painted murals on walls.

Stotts was a prolific painter and was known to have painted works every single day. He was not comfortable in social situations. An intelligent man, he was a lover of classical music. In his later years he devoted much of his talent to painting scenes of Southern plantation life.

In failing health for about a year, Paul M. Stotts died at Baptist Hospital in Memphis on October 11, 1944.
