Contact Details


Phil has been working full-time at the School of Art since 2000. Originally from Leicester, he took a Foundation Course at Loughborough College of Art and Design before studying for a BA in Fine Art at both Stourbridge College of Technology and Art and Wolverhampton University. In 1993 he arrived in Aberystwyth to study both Geography and Art History and quickly moved on to an MPhil in Art History. His thesis was on the 'Welsh Primitive' - an anonymous, amateur artist who recorded scenes of mid-nineteenth century Wales in an idiosyncratic, na?ve style. Phil has been teaching his popular lifelong-learning art history modules at the School of Art since 2005. He is a keen print collector and an occasional printmaker.
