About Anita Phillips

Anita Phillips is a Western Australian visual artist with an appreciation and respect for ‘place’. She looks to experience and paint landscapes of isolated, challenging and solitary beauty. Raised on a farm in the Wheatbelt, many of Anita’s works are grounded in her love of the big skies, long horizons and harsh weather of Australia. She works mainly in oils, on canvas and panel. Travel to remote locations and plein air painting have become an increasingly significant aspect of her process and continues to inform Anita’s studio work.
