William S Phillips – explore von Essen Galerie for the artist reproduction wall art prints. Whether it be wall prints or other art media you will find just what you are looking for.
Phillips grew up loving art, but never thought he could make it his livelihood. At college, he majored in criminology and he had been accepted into law school when four of his paintings were sold. That was all the incentive he needed to begin his work as a fine art painter.
Phillips is now the aviation artist of choice for many American heroes and the nostalgic landscape artist of choice for many collectors.
His strengths as a landscape painter are what gave him an edge in the aviation field. When one sees his aviation pieces, thoughts are about the courageous individuals who risked their lives for our freedom. In his landscapes, the viewer understands fully what that freedom is.
