About Jeff Phillips

Jeff Phillips is a committed environmentalist, a passionate educator and in many people’s eyes, Swansea’s greatest living artist.


Decades as a distinguished portrait artist and illustrator have produced a body of work that tells Swansea’s story, often far more eloquently than any words could. As well as reflecting on Swansea’s past, Jeff is constantly looking forward. His work with students and schoolchildren brings the arts to life for the next generation. In 2021 this inspirational sharing of ideas will be taken to a new level with Swansea Past, Present and Future.
