THE ART OF ELIZABETH PHILLIPS
Welcome and thanks for visiting my site! I’m Elizabeth Phillips and, as with most artists, I’ve been drawing for most of my life. After receving a Bachelor's Degree in Digital Art from Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama, I moved to Savannah, Georgia. I have since earned a Master's Degree in Sequential Art (comic books) from the Savannah College of Art and Design. Rather than pursue a career in comics, however, I find I'm more interesed in producing fantasy illustrations. The training I received from my department has been most helpful in giving my work a greater sense of narrative content. I have no doubt I would not be the artist I am today without the support of the Sequential Art Department and recommend them highly to anyone interested in becoming a narrative artist.
While I have been working on mainly Goddess art for some time now, I am beginning to find myself interested in adding fae creatures to my images. Fairies, angels, and mermaids have begun to appear in my sketchbook and I am eager to bring these sketches to completion. I work mainly with colored pencils, but also use watercolor and pen and ink.
The Victorian era is the period of art which has most influenced my work. I love the work of artists such as Lord Leighton, J.W. Waterhouse, Alma-Tadema, Herbert James Draper, Evelyn de Morgan, J.W. Godward, and other artists of that time who are often referred to as Pre-Raphaelites. I also admire such contemporary artists as Kinuko Craft, Becky Kelly, Rowena Morrill, Meredith Dillman, Lindsay Archer, Natalia Pierandrei, Nene Thomas, and many, many more!
I’d like to thank some of the people who have helped me with my work and this site:
Extra special thanks go to my Mom and Dad, who’ve always supported me.
Thanks also to my models:
