Naast zijn professie als beeldend kunstenaar was hij enkele jaren docent grafische technieken aan de Akademie voor Beeldende Kunst (ABK) in Maastricht. Verder maakte hij (samen met een collega) t.b.v. de Beeldende Vorming in het Basisonderwijs een bijzonder succesvolle methode voor het Tekenonderwijs, op vrijwel alle scholen in Nederland, Belgie en Noorwegen in gebruik.

Paul Koppers werkt in verschillende technieken waarbij kleurenetsen en schilderijen een prominente plaats innemen.
De kleurenetsen komen tot stand in een combinatie van meerdere druktechnieken, in één beeld zowel diepdruk, hoogdruk als vlakdruk. Het formaat is vrij groot; opvallend zijn de intense kleuren, laag over laag in transparante inkten gedrukt. De oplage is altijd beperkt, waardoor het werk exclusief blijft.
De schilderijen ontstaan eveneens in een combinatie van verschillende technieken en materialen zoals olieverf, acryl en drukinkten op een ondergrond van zwaar canvas/zeildoek. De vormgeving is op een speciale manier abstract; het is een voortdurende zoektocht naar "nieuwe beelden".
Het werk is in het algemeen beschouwelijk/filosofisch van aard. Hoofdthema is de relatie. De relatie tussen mensen, tussen mens en cultuur, tussen mens en natuur, tussen allerlei manieren van denken en leven alsook de invloed van de tijd en de plaats op dit alles. De veranderingen in de bovengenoemde relaties, het vergankelijke van het aardse, het geringe effect van de leer uit de geschiedenis vormen al jaren een bron van inspiratie.
