About the Artist
I am always in a hypnotic state of wonder, when natures offer so many visual gifts to appreciate and to praise.
Hello, I'm Phyllis, life-long artist and California native.
Creating visual images that spark self-reflection and motivate the healing process is my passion, and as a Vietnam-era Navy veteran, I find guiding therapeutic art groups for the veteran community especially rewarding.
I love experimenting with colors, textures, and techniques as well as using various surfaces including canvas, wood, metals—even footwear! A number of my creations have been featured in interior art placements, restoration projects, and mural commissions.
Inspired by outdoor vistas, much of my artwork features unusual landscapes where I highlight nature's graceful beauty. You can see my celebration of spirit in the Vibrant Nature and Universe Sensations series or the integration of man and universe in Man & Energy. And The Price of Freedom is my visual tribute to the courageous men and women of our military.
Every day I find joy, hope, and acceptance in my craft. My wish for you is that through my artwork you experience the same.
