Phil Robinson Lancashire, United Kingdom
I'm a Preston, Lancashire based artist working on a wide variety of themes using pencil, charcoal, oils, digital and soft chalk pastels. I have an interest in classical art styles, impressionism and the atelier schools.
I always drew a lot as a child, art was very important to me and over 25 years ago I moved to Preston to attend Art School. I ended up changing path and instead had a successful career in creative technology.
I always had plans to return to drawing and painting but like most people I just never really found the time. I have maintained an academic interest in art and humanities though and I recently completed a Masters degree in Museum and Art Gallery Studies.
I started to draw again in 2018 and also took a short drawing course at the Ruskin School of Art. I'm currently studying with the Tucson Art Academy and being mentored in impressionist oil painting by the modern impressionist Colley Whisson. In 2019, one of my paintings "Sitting Duck" was short-listed for the Refresh Art Award.
