Murray Phillips
Murray Phillips looks like an artist. With a long beard, long hair and comfortable attire, he is quiet and thoughtful by nature.

Although he has been painting for 40 years, most of Murray's life has been lived in the halls of academia. He holds graduate degrees in both Theology and Cultural Anthropology. For over 20 years he has taught in a variety of colleges and universities. His interests are many, including classical guitar, snowshoeing, canoeing and sailing -- but an abiding love has been his desire to paint. In his own words: "There is an intense urgency to paint, as if something important needs to be said, and I can only say it with brush and canvas."

Murray has a strong desire to express the spiritual in his paintings. Much of his work centers on the western wilderness of North America, particularly Alberta and British Columbia. He spends a great deal of time in the backwoods and remote areas where he both paints and photographs a variety of scenes and subjects. "I feel most at home in the wilderness," Murray says. "I have several studios, but my favorites are my sailboat, my canoe or my camper, which enable me to transport my studio to the painting site."
