Artist Statement

Maren Phillips grew up in the hills of Tennessee. Her interest in portraiture and landscape painting evolved from her observations of animals and nature during those early years. Her animal portraits are filled with insight and sensitivity, and the landscape work shows understanding of a sense of place.

After receiving her BFA from Washington University in St. Louis, School of Fine Arts, Maren Phillips moved to Texas, where she now resides. Maren travels extensively to display her work, paint en plein air, and visit commissioned portrait clients. After many years of independent study and pursuit of life, Maren entered the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, and received her MFA with a focus on figurative work. While plein air painting is a growing passion for her, portrait work remains her primary focus.

Maren enjoys sharing her passion for painting with others by teaching in several venues both privately and through arts organizations. She leads workshops in painting and drawing and holds seminars on Nature Journaling and drawing in the field.
