Phyllis Mahon is a professional artist and illustrator who studied Painting and Printmaking at Belfast College of Art in the 1970's and after living in London until 1993, has based her studio in the Lincolnshire Wolds. Throughout the nineties, illustrating large Tarot and Astrology projects for a well known Colour Therapy Company immediately brought her art to a worldwide audience. Over the past forty years she has exhibited extensively in the UK and Ireland and was one of seven Northern Irish artists representing Ulster in a group exhibition in Hong Kong, as well as having a solo exhibition in Georgia USA.
Women and lovers have always been her fascination, but more recently the Lincolnshire landscape with its dark skies and layers receding for miles has made a strong impression on her. It initially provided a pastoral backdrop for her subjects, but she now depicts rolling skies and light-filled trees as landscape pieces in their own right - a perfect metaphor to convey emotion and spirituality. Phyllis favours the mediums of watercolour, acrylic and pastels. Ten years ago she received an Arts Council East Midlands Award to learn stone-carving and now loves carving in the local limestone.
Since her last exhibition at Gallery at St. Martins one year ago, she was commissioned to create nine illustrations by a Danish author, and has continued to add to her comprehensive list of artworks available online. Phyllis Mahon's works are in collectors in Asia, Australia, Europe, Mexico and the USA.
