Biography photo for Gordon Phillips
Gordon Phillips was born in 1927 in Boone, North Carolina. He studied at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington, D.C. and became an illustrator and sculptor of conventional, realistically detailed Western subject matter. Long a commercial artist, Phillips was art director for an advertising agency, placing work in national magazines. He later devoted himself to becoming a fine artist.

He often made expeditions to the West, seeking visual experiences and artifacts. He has received commissions from the Franklin Mint, National Geographic Society and Smithsonian Institution, exhibiting at the Kennedy Gallery in New York City.
