About Alfred Phillips

Alfred Phillips

Since beginning his painting career in 2003, Alfred Phillips has won eight "Best In Show" prizes including the prestigious Art Florida top award plus numerous other prizes.  Collectors can be counted in England, Germany, South America, Puerto Rico, Canada, and many U.S. states.

Phillips' formal introduction to art began with a full scholarship to the Art Center School in his native Louisville, Kentucky.  There, he later began an award-winning graphic design studio which he closed after almost twenty years of successful business.

Phillips moved to Florida in October of 2003 and fulfilled a life-long dream of having his own painting studio.  Alfred prefers painting with fast-drying acrylics rather than oils, which are too slow-drying for his liking.  He often quick-sketches his subject in pencil or charcoal and relies on imagination, personal observation,  memory, studio setups or photos he has taken for reference purposes.

"It is gratifying to have my work recognized and awards were particularly important to me at the onset of my painting career.  That has become less important to me as I try to satisfy my biggest critic; myself.  I will draw and paint regardless of the response to my work.  It's part of me and what I must do."
