Geoff Phillips is an artist and has been living in Maple Creek, Sask. for the past seven years. His work is large format oil paintings on canvas and focuses on the unique Canadian landscape and wildlife found here. Geoff’s mission is to bring people closer to their environment and foster learning and understanding of species, ecosystems and interconnectivity through art. Art is wonderful at unlocking people’s natural aptitudes and inclinations towards balance and contemplation. Yes, it is important to study our environment through the traditional disciplines of biology and science, but it is also valuable to explore with art.
