Paul Bachem

Come to the church house to see the display of beautiful oil paintings from one of our sextons, Paul Bachem. Paul studied with Harold R. Stevenson and Alma Gallanos Stevenson and enjoyed a thirty-plus year illustration career. He worked for clients in New York City, across the country and as far away as Sydney, Australia. Paul’s paintings are in numerous private collections as well as the permanent collection of the Forbes Gallery in New York City. He now concentrates on plein air painting and has shown at a number of galleries in the Northeast. Paul has participated as a competition artist in a number of plein air events including the Wayne Art Center Plein Air Festival in Wayne, PA, Paint The Town 2011 in Cranford, NJ, and in the prestigious Plein Air Easton in Easton, MD where he won first place in the Quick Draw in 2013. In addition to being our Sexton for the past year, Paul also loves to cook and plays classical guitar. He lives in Bedminster with his wife Jan Leotti, Church Administrative Assistant at BRPC and their grouchy cat Dizzy. Visit his website @
