I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe-Blade Runner

Biography
Philip hails from the wet and very green island of Ireland & like so many of his fellow countrymen, discovered the ‘wanderlust’ of foreign climes. Expedition artist on the British-based Operation Raleigh organisation to Australia in 1989 led Philip to his first children’s book, Horatio Rides the Wind and by 1998 settled in Australia permanently. His final ‘swansong’ before migrating to Australia came with a commission from HM THE QUEEN as one of 4 UK artists chosen to paint for the new Royal Telemessage.



Philip draws from life wherever possible - studies of the creatures he paints fill his studio, while the floor is usually littered with ideas and thoughts of future creations! Like ‘Willy Wonka’ and the everlasting gobstopper, Philip loves to create images that endure and delight again and again. His illustrations hold new secrets that must be found through time and patience.



Philip’s second book with Koala Books- POLE TO POLE was short listed in the 2001 CBC Awards. The sequel -FIRE TO LIFE was published in 2006. Philip’s latest foray deals with his long term love of puzzle and intrigue - NATURE HUNT published 2005 and TAKE 2 published late 2006 run the gauntlet of looking for, finding, puzzling this and that and best of all, going back time and time again to find a new twist!



His illustration work is available for commercial and private commissions dealing with children’s book and magazine illustrations, product promotion and packaging, travel/expedition editorial features, wildlife and nature publications, advertising and licensing opportunities for calenders and greeting cards.
