An avid canoeist, Phil believes that a fully equipped  paradise needs only a quiet back lake, a canoe, art supplies and  a fishing rod.  Born in the Thousand Island Region of  Ontario, Phil has traveled the width and breadth of  Canada.  He and  his family continue to find little pieces of paradise everywhere in  Canada!

See the interactive Google Map below to see where I have painted.

Trained as a nuclear physicist, Phil found a career in meteorology with Environment Canada in 1976. Phil specializes in severe weather conditions and has been the meteorologist behind the "scenes" in some very major weather stories. Currently Phil is training meteorologists and completing some research work.

Phil is an occasional writer for Harrowsmith and other nature oriented magazines. Weather stories and art, both from a realistic perspective, get into print as often as  possible! Phil also does presentations on a wide range of topics from the weather to art, climate change and land stewardship.

Phil is also interested in the birds and the bees.  As a beekeeper (apiarist), he keeps up to 10 colonies on the family farm. 

Phil's artworks are depictions of personal experiences.  They hang in many private and corporate collections  around the globe.  Several magazines and  calendars have used his work.  All of Phil's work is included in the gallery right from the first day with Mario to the present.  Trends in style, subject matter and technique are all reflected and nothing is left out.

A passion for creation" sums it all up!   Try to help make things just a bit better than you found them ... plus you gotta have fun... and remember, you gotta laugh!

This a fun map showing some of the places where I have painted...
