Originally from Perth, Western Australia, Phil studied Graphic Design, Fine Art, and Illustration, before settling in Brighton back in 1993. He has exhibited successfully in Australia and the UK, and has completed several large scale commissions for private clients, ranging from the more simplistic portraits, to the incredibly detailed scenic works. Over the years, he has experimented with a wide variety of mixed mediums, but has now perfected a style using oil and acylics on canvas.
Having been born in Australia, and after travelling quite extensively throughout India, Phil's passion for nature, and rich vibrant use of colour, has manifested itself into his work, and inspiration comes from a wide variety of life experiences. Some works have taken several months to complete, as the subtle, but controlled, use of his mediums have required many applications to achieve the exact finish and high standard of workmanship that goes into each creation. In an attempt to make his work available to a wider audience, Phil has now released limited edition Lithographic prints of several images, and canvas prints are also available for the cost-conscious collector!
