Philippa Paterson

Philippa Paterson was born in New York, and thereafter followed a peripatetic life, living in many countries such as Switzerland, Cyprus, Japan, Australia, France and South Africa.

Philippa held equally diverse careers such as publishing, PR, translating and horse breeding. She studied art in Sussex, London, Johannesburg and Sydney, and she currently works in a studio in the South Downs.

Painting imagined realities using family photos, images from the Internet and life models as source material, Philippa's interest in the human condition feeds her painterly imagination. Thinly applied paint jostles with areas of impasto in her figurative works.
