Biography

Portrait-of-Philippa-with-Still-Life-Cosmos

bio2

Philippa received a BA Honours Degree in 1996 from Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London. After graduating, she set up a studio, exhibiting throughout the south of England in galleries including No.54 Shepherds Market, The Arts Club London, Ardquin Fine Arts in Haslemere and the Wey Gallery in Godalming.

Philippa works from a studio in her home in Haslemere, where she lives with her husband and three children. Her paintings are a reflection of her life experiences and her love for the medium. Her paintings are injected with passion and emotion, resonant in the loose brush work and gestural markings. She is particularly drawn to the rugged and naturally beautiful land and seascapes of Cornwall.
