He studied at Stourbridge Art College in Birmingham before moving on to his first job as a Commercial Artist working for Longley’s and Hoffman.

Whilst living and working he carried on with his true passion Painting. He carried out a number of commissions and painting of all sorts for different clients. He has now started his own business; Phil‘s quote’ I paint from the heart and memories of beautiful places and people. I don’t just stick to the rules. I can do portraits or any other picture, painting you require, maybe that beautiful place you visited and you feel it should be hung in your home, so everyone can love the place as much as you do.’ ‘I am so grateful and flattered that some of you enjoy my work as much as I do creating it.’ Phil
