Phillip grew up in Leicester Massachusetts, spending much of his time exploring the forests of New England and nearby fields of farmland. His love for the natural world and its inhabitants captured his imagination and fueled a desire to render them with pencil and paper. Through various classes, Phillip explored new mediums and went on to study fine art painting at the Rhode Island School of Design. During his studies, he experimented with conceptual art making ranging from sculptural mediums, to performance and photography based works. Phillip currently aspires to a mobile lifestyle and hopes to one day travel in a mobile live/work studio from which he can share his live painting and artwork across America.
"It is good to love many things, for therein lies strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done with love is well done."
- Vincent Van Gogh
