About the Artist

Phil has been painting professionally for over twenty years. His innovative and original style has led to numerous sales and many successful exhibitions.

His commercial background began as a graphic designer and artist before going freelance in 1992. He started his own design consultancy, Lonestar Design, specialising in marketing communications and corporate identities. Phil now concentrates his time on his passion for encaustic wax art - a medium he thinks is under utilised. Not only has he earned a reputation as an artist but also as a teacher and lecturer of encaustic art.

Phil paints using coloured encaustic wax and various heating implements including hot air gun, hot stylus and hot plate. His paintings are bold and bright or soft and sensuous, demanding attention and challenging the viewer on a visual or emotional level to experience more. His work is innovative, exciting and contemporary. It touches your soul, sometimes beautiful sometimes a touch frightening, but never boring. Often you can see different images and feel changing emotions - so many pictures in one.

Phil is a member of the Bucks Visual Images Group. Also a qualified teacher, he has taught at Missenden Abbey and runs encaustic wax art courses and workshops. Phil is a very popular demonstrator and lecturer giving talks and demonstrations to art clubs and societies throughout Southern England.
