Duncan Phillips

Duncan is an English born photographer and abstract painter. Following his service in the British Army, Duncan returned to school to study art at the F+F School for Art in Zurich, Switzerland. Duncan has lived abroad for 25 years, both in Switzerland and in Spain, where he displayed his art and took on commissioned work for private collectors. Duncan’s art has been inspired by extensive travels. He has used his photography for charitable causes such as an orphanage in Uganda he was actively involved with. Upon his return to Lancashire in 2014 Duncan has once again fallen in love with the wild moors and windswept landscapes of his youth and has started a new portfolio capturing the often rugged nature of England’s north. Duncan prefers black and white photography to capture an essence of power and dramatic skies in his landscapes. He uses his photography for a realistic portrayal of his favourite natural themes, but uses his paintings to capture emotions evoked by the same. Duncan’s paintings are exclusively abstract and often created on large format canvases or clusters. Duncan enjoys working with interior designers to create a piece of art ideal for a specific space. He also teaches photography and has long-standing experience in the hospitality industry. He likes to show students the best local countryside and culture have to offer while his guests enhance their skill on site.
