Phyllis Wolff studied art at Goldsmiths’ College and St Martins School of Art, and taught at Kingston School of Art before moving to Dorset. Since then she has built a reputation as an important Dorset artist, represented in private and public collections, as well exhibiting widely in galleries in England and abroad.
Sometimes working in watercolour, charcoal, or making prints, Phyllis’ preferred medium is oil on canvas. Most of her work is figurative: portraits, still lifes and of course landscapes.
Phyllis is a vibrant colourist, with a fluent handling of her material somewhat reminiscent of Kokoschka, though she would probably say that she owes more to Matisse.
