December2017 Artist of the Month/Phil Clark


December & January Artist of the Month

Phil Clark

Please join us in welcoming Phil with a reception on Friday, December 1, 2017 at 5:00 PM

Having admired stained glass art for most of his life, Phil, an avid photographer and hiker has been creating custom stained glass art since 2008.  He takes photographs of natural scenery and uses the natural lines in the landscape to create each stained glass design.  His work includes landscapes as well as geometric designs.

A native of New Mexico, and a fluent speaker of French and Spanish, Phil has lived and traveled overseas and from coast to coast in the United States.  Having lived here twice in the last 30 years he and his wife, Kim, call Page, Arizona home.  Phil met Kim in Page, in 1989 and they have one grown son.  He retired in 2017 after serving the American people for 34 years with the National Park Service and the U.S. Air Force as a civil engineer.

When he is not making stained glass art, Phil loves to hike, camp and travel. Their home in Page keeps them busy gardening in their greenhouse and home remodeling work.

Phil has completed many commissions for people and prides himself in working with the client to create stained glass art.  His work hangs in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Washington, Oregon, Massachusetts, Maryland and France.

He welcomes new commissions and urges clients to call or email him.
