Murray Phillips

Murray is a readily recognizable and well-known Canadian artist. Although he has been painting for over forty years, much of his life has been lived in the halls of academia.

He holds graduate degrees in theology and cultural anthropology and has taught in a variety of colleges and universities for more than twenty years. His many interests include classical guitar and sailing, but an abiding love has been his yearning to paint. Murray has a strong desire to express the spiritual in his paintings. He transports his studio by canoe, sailboat, or tent trailer and spends several months each year camping in isolated areas. His paintings reflect his love for nature.

Murray is presently working on a book of his paintings advocating a renewed connection with the wilderness and its inhabitants. He also is frequently asked to speak on our relationship with both art and the wilderness.
