Phil Monk :
from his Cotswold childhood, his training as a sculptor (BA Hons from Ravensbourne College of Art) through a teaching career as Head of Art at Chris Wren School in London and as Director of Art  Bryanston in Dorset, into Fashion photography in Chelsea in the Swinging Sixties, then opening a photographic centre in remotest Wales followed by a portrait studio in Bath before moving to the South of France to paint and draw and sculpt while renovating a ruined Mas surrounded by wild mountain landscape, ancient olives and the Mediterranean, he has always been an artist.
Multifaceted, ever creative, his work reflects the tumultuous course his life has taken.
