Phil Chadwick

Phil Chadwick was born in the Kingston-Brockville Cooridor of the St. Lawrence River. He had former training at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario as a nuclear physicist, but also worked for Environment of Canada as a severe weather meteorologist. His artistic career began in drawings during the late 1950s, and a decade after he picked up painting under the direction of Mario Airomi. He paints landscapes, water and, of course, weather.  Phil considers himself an en plein air painter that uses loose brushstrokes and vivid colours to convey his landscape scenes. As weather is constantly changing, he prefers to work loosely to capture the movement of the environment during the time he paints.

Not only is Phil an artist, but he is an apiarist, farmer, canoeist, naturalist, birdwatcher, and nature writer.
