Anita Phillips works mainly in oils, on canvas and board. She utilises plein air studies, drawings and photography to inform her large scale studio work. Anita is inspired to capture a feeling of calmness and contemplation in the depictions of landscapes and still life that form the body of her work. Anita was raised on a farm in the Wheatbelt of WA; many of her works are grounded in her love of the vast skies, horizon and weather of the landscape. Anita's art seeks to evoke a moment of observation to instil a meditative appreciation of sense of place and time.
