This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A native of Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Phill Nethercott paints the landscape of his home state including the Grand Tetons, aspen and cottonwood trees.  His heritage in that area runs deep as his grandparents were among the first settlers in the Teton Valley, and settled a ranch that grew to 160 acres.

Nethercott married his highschool sweetheart, studied art at Brigham Young University in Utah and then returned to Wyoming.  To support his family before his art career took hold, he designed and built custom homes.

Nethercott depicts the western landscape he has known since childhood, using his own technique for creating texture and a style that combines Impressionism and Realism.   He first paints a light coat of gesso on the canvas followed by a detailed transparent underpainting in full color, using watersoluble oil and acrylic paints.  He finishes by splashing the surface with dribble and splatters which create "controlled accidents."  He then finishes this stage with a watercolor masking technique in which he applies multiple layers of paint over a period of days.

Nethercott is one of the co-founders of Art for the Parks painting competition and exhibition.  The goal was to provide a venue for emerging artists to show their work, with  strong financial incentive.  The top prize is $100,000.  Ironically he has never entered an exhibition.

Biography from McLarry Fine Art:
Dedicated to capturing the majesty of his birthplace in his work, painter Phill Nethercott is a true native to Jackson Hole, Wyoming.  His great-grandparents were among the first settlers of the Teton valley when they arrived there in 1896. “It’s one of those places where in every direction there’s something wonderful to paint, and the mood is constantly changing.”

Nethercott spent his boyhood exploring the awe-inspiring landscape known to attract countless artists.  The artist community of Jackson Hole was very supportive and influential to Nethercott.  Painters such as Conrad Schwering, John Clymer, and Jim Wilcox were his mentors and role models. 

After moving to Utah to study art at Brigham Young in Utah, Nethercott returned home where he continued to paint on the side while working full-time to support his family. During this time he explored a variety of media and techniques before coming to work exclusively in oils.  As he learned to paint primarily by his own experimentation, his work is distinctive in style. 

Nethercott co-founded the Arts for the Parks competition.  In the late eighties, he and fellow artist Patty Boyd decided to create an event that would provide emerging artists an opportunity to show and compete with better known artists. The exhibition would offer a prize of $100,000 and U.S. national parks would be its theme. From the start an enormous success, the competition is approaching its twentieth anniversary.
