Welcome to Phil Laverty Art

I have been painting and drawing for as long as I've been old enough to hold a pencil so going to art college seemed the natural next step for me after I left school. I did my art foundation course at Mabel Fletcher College in Liverpool which gave me a traditional grounding in Painting and Life Drawing. I then went to North East Wales College of Art where I decided that illustration was the direction I wanted to go in. I moved to London after my course finished and was on the books of a number of London agents. From there I joined a Wiltshire-based agency, Blue Chip Illustration, where I undertook jobs for companies such as Audi, WH Smith and E.M.I. amongst others.

Now I have returned to painting in a more traditional style which I hope will be of interest and bring you back over time as more paintings are added to the site.
