Phil is an artist from the Ts'msyen and Cree Nations. Born and raised in Vancouver, throughout his formative years he was able to interact with and learn from many accomplished artists.

Phil's work focuses on the traditional Ts'msyen style of carving and formline design, a hereditary right passed down through his mother. His goal has always been to help raise the profile of Ts’msyen art while creating art for traditional use to help maintain connections with his people and heritage.

Phil also likes displaying his artwork via non-traditional items and locations as a creative way to share Ts’msyen art with a broader audience.
