Murray Phillips looks like an artist. With a long beard and hair, and comfortable attire, he is quiet and thoughtful by nature. Although he has been painting for 35 years, most of Murray’s life has been lived in the halls of academia where he holds graduate degrees in Theology and Cultural Anthropology. For over 20 years, he has taught in a variety of colleges and universities. His interests are many, including classical guitar and sailing; but an abiding love has been his desire to paint. “There is an intense urgency to paint, as if something important needs to be said, and I can only say it with brush and canvas.”
Murray Phillips is a member of the Western Lights Artists Group. You can meet Murray Phillips in person and view his new works November 5th till 7th, 2008 at Commerce Place in Edmonton. For more info click here.
