Opening Reception | Christopher S. Phillips | 'Memory Lane'

We had a wonderful evening at the opening reception for our newest exhibit, Memory Lanefeaturing paintings by Christopher S. Phillips. Phillips' work invites you to reminisce moments in your life, creating an emotional response that takes you down memory lane. He created beautiful landscapes and a conceptional series that explores the journey of life. 

Phillips studied at Pensacola Christian College, earning a BS in studio art. Afterwards, he stayed and earned his MFA under the mentorship of acclaimed biblical illustrator and fine artist, Brian Jekel. He has been influenced by revered illustrators and storytellers such as Dean Cornwell, N.C. Wyeth, and Arthur Rackham. Altogether, Phillips considers himself an illustrator in that he seeks to tell stories and convey truth in all of his creative work.
Phillips resides in Lynchburg, Va. with his wife, Kelsey Phillips – likewise an illustrator – and pet rabbit, Farley. He is a member of the Liberty University art faculty where he teaches painting, drawing, and design classes. As a teacher and illustrator, Phillips’ goal is to bring honor and glory to God and reflect His creativity.
