“Call me an artist, illustrator or photographer, I have a keen eye for detail, a passion for my work and a sense of wonder and colour. Art should never be boring, it should keep the viewer interested. Art should tell a story or keep you guessing, entice you, keep you wondering, questioning, whether it’s the technique, the brushstroke or subject matter it should make you ponder.”

A graduate of Dawson College`s Illustration & Design program in Montreal, Phil has a love for the old and the new, from the Neoclassical artists to the Art Nouveaux commercial posters of Alphonse Mucha. Mix this with his love for graphic novels, pop culture, and chiaroscuro. Phil has exhibited his work at various conventions including Concept Montreal, and Island Blue in Victoria.
