It all started when...
Ronnie Phillips is an award-winning photographer, mixed-media artist and educator whose insightful works display cultures from America’s rural heartlands to the villages and cities in West Africa and Brazil. Phillips work has received national praise, winning over 100 awards and 10 “Best of Show” awards.
It was at a show in Kansas City, that Phillips work caught the eye of musician, singer, songwriter and actress Sheryl Crowe. She took home two pieces.
His art now graces the homes of Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry and Cecily Tyson, entertainment icon Bill Cosby, comedians and television and film actors Damon Wayans, David Alan Grier and directors Spike Lee and Bill Duke, legendary recording artist Dionne Warwick, television and film actors C.C. Pounder, Glynn Turman and Sherl Lee Ralph.
Expanding his talents, Phillips took up painting and injected new possibilities into his work with mixed media. His works now vary from colorful collages of his images, to acrylic paintings embedded with his award winning photographic accents.
“My goal is that the viewers will be drawn to reflect on their life experiences and ideologies,” Phillips says. “I aspire to assist others to deepen their process of self-reflection through my work.”
