WAHIDA PHILLIPS | MIXED MEDIA ARTIST
Wahida Phillips is a contemporary artist creating fine art prints and cards using a variety of media. These include digital, as well as traditional hand drawn methods, watercolours, inks and acrylic paints. She works from her home studio in Portishead, where she designs and draws all her artwork. These are printed onto heavyweight fine art paper using giclee inks. Wahida is inspired by nature and architecture and mostly works with a bright and bold colour palette.
“I was a neuroscientist for many happy years but I also loved art and yearned to flex my creative muscles. When we moved to Portishead from London 8 years ago I fell in love with this beautiful and friendly town and decided the time was right to reinvent myself.
I’m constantly inspired by the amazing and iconic sculptures, landscape and architecture here. I also love all things pretty, colourful and whimsical which is reflected in my reimagined artwork of local scenery. It has been wonderful realising this dream as well as having the flexibility to meet the demands of motherhood. I hope my art will bring others as much joy as it does for me”.
