Who the F#@k is Phyllis

I credit my creative nature to my incredibly resourceful parents.  Growing up in Kansas as the youngest of a large farm family was fun, chaotic and always interesting.  4-H was my first experience in art & craft, guided by several of my older siblings.  After HS, I attended Kansas State University, graduating with a BFA, majoring in graphic design.  I worked as a designer in Kansas City for Willoughby design which solidified my love for creative life.  Family life took me away from KS for the next six years but during that time is when I discovered painting.  We moved back to KS landing Manhattan and I have enjoyed working and living in this community.
I work in several different mediums including oil and acrylic large figurative paintings, functional art furniture, 2D metal/wood sculptural installations.  Besides showing at art galleries in the region, I have had several pop-up art shows in Manhattan.  You can see my work at several local restaurants and businesses in Manhattan, including Rock-A-Belly Deli, SoLong Saloon, Bourbon & Baker, Bluestem {bistro}, Bluestem {grill}, KS State bank, Bank of the Flinthills, and Downtown Dental.
Look for me on-line as well as Instagram and Etsy.  I take commisions for art, furniture for private and commercial clients.
