Phil is a York-born artist who has been practising and exhibiting since 2005 after graduating in Fine Art from Sheffield Hallam University.
His paintings and drawings are inspired by direct engagement with the landscape and the experience of being with the elements.'You see so much more after spending a day looking at the subtle shifts in light and being open to nature's forces'.
If not outdoors then Phil works in his studio on abstracts inspired by these visits. Experimenting with media sets up exciting collisions and harmonies in the more mediated environment indoors. 'I like to record what the camera cannot and that is a human response to the visual and physical'
Phil also teaches privately from his studio and various workshops around the county.
