"Quite simply I've always loved to draw and paint. As a child, wanting to document my newly discovered 'treasures', I put pencil to paper, hoping to capture the intricate surface of a leaf or the delicate texture of a feather. As time went on, color became a key element in my work and I enjoyed exploring its effects in different mediums such as colored pencils, watercolor, gouache, acrylics and various photographic techniques. While the natural world holds endless fascination for me, I have recently started to depart from it, working abstractly, and from my imagination. By accepting change, and being open to new influences in my work, I am continually growing and learning new ways to be creative."

Phyllis lives in Greenwich, CT and has an art studio in Stamford. She holds an MS in Historic Preservation from Columbia University's Graduate School of Architecture, a BFA from the New School, and a certificate in Interior Design from the Parson's School of Design as well as a certificate in Botanical Illustration from the NY Botanical Gardens. After working as an interior designer in NY and an art appreciation teacher for Learning to Look, she has returned to her first passions, drawing and painting. She is currently a member of the Loft Artists Association, the Greenwich Arts Society, and the American Society of Botanical Artists.
