About the Artist
Born in the UK in the late forties, moving to New Zealand in 1996, Philip has dabbled with drawing and painting from a young age.
Self-taught, his style developed after spending several years as part of a crew on many large ocean racing yachts.
Much of Philip’s work reflects the many changing moods of the sea. These paintings are mixed media, and rely heavily on the use of pallet blades and fingers and hopefully evoke the emotion and motion of the sea.
