Philip Watkins


Specialist skills

  • Drawing
  • Painting

Philip Watkins studied Fine Art at Newport Art College and has exhibited his work both nationally and internationally. Philip works from observation, making drawings of places that hold some particular ‘atmospheric’ interest for him. He then works things up in the studio, using light and subtle colour relationships, added to memory, to convey a mood that he hopes people can identify with.

Philip spent twelve years working in animation – winning a BAFTA and an EMMY as part of the Siriol Animation Team. He also taught drawing to young offenders and worked for seven years as a full-time youth worker on some of Cardiff’s peripheral housing estates. Philip is an experienced adult tutor, specialising in drawing and painting. More of Philip’s work can be found at his website.
