About this pro

 .I am a self-taught artist, but also studied under an apprenticeship for 14 yrs, under the famous Artist Gustavo Novoa,  I have had many shows and my art is in the collections of Prince Agon Ferstenburg, Lady Sarah Churchill. Presently my art is on the Holland Cruise Lines on several ships through Artlink.com, As I am one of their featured Artist.  I have been featured on many front pages of art magazines, Like A5 Magazine out of UK 2 months in a row, and also High Shelf Press, Open Arts Forum, ArtDex,  and recently will be in the 2cnd week of the  February Edition of Straw Litter Productions Run By owner Mike Healey, who has featured my art in a two page spread out of California, he has a gallery of his own as well.

I paint landscapes famous city skyline and beautiful homes from around the world, Tropical birds in their natural surroundings, And Lighthouse's too.   My website is https://www.timothyfphillips.com/

I love to create and the joy it brings me to see something from the beginning to the finish. I enjoy mixing the colors and placing the objects all over the painting and working on it from the back to the front. And I love helping people in any way I can I've always been a people person, it is in my character, to do so.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First would be color mixology, 2cnd would be teaching them how to lay out items in the painting, placement etc. 3rd would be starting with your base coats and bringing the painting forward from back to front. I would use the students personal choice as to what they wish to create and then incorporate it into their work of art. And bring it to life in the best professional way I know how.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I was an apprentice under the teaching of the famous Artist from Chili Gustavo Novoa for 14 years I would pass on that knowledge and my own knowledge combined with all I have learned through the years. Teaching them the ropes of advertising, promoting, shipping, receiving etc.  I have been painting since I was in my early 20's I have learned many techniques and styles through the years.
