Philippa is an artist working in Madison, Wisconsin. She enjoys painting people, their animals, and deep space, among others. The tone of her work alternates between serious, humorous, and surreal (e.g., Hubble space images as a painterly treasure map, a greyhound drinking a fruity greyhound cocktail, and oysters and ears paired as not-so-odd couples). Childhood memories, especially the tight-chested relationships with animals, landscapes, and the vast sky, are strongly suggested in her images.

In addition to her personal work, Philippa also works as a pet portrait artist. She is always looking to expand the variety of species and breeds in her repertoire.
