Every portrait here is a bold exploration of character, each stroke revealing a bit more of the story behind the eyes.

Phil brings this diversity of experience and unique perspective to commissioned work as well. He’s available to turn your story into a piece of art that stands out, that’s profoundly personal and timeless.
