Phillip Gagnon is the Assistant to the Bishop for Domestic Missions and Discipleship for the NALC in St. Albert, Alberta Canada. He is married to his beautiful, intelligent and mostly right about almost everything wife, Patricia and has three adult children busy enjoying their lives while simultaneously driving him crazy as often as they can.
In my art I aspire to inspire others to see the beauty in everything around us, to feel the emotions stirred within me when I saw a scene for the first time. I feel that every moment of life reflects the Supreme artist’s hand – in doing so I find life itself in the creation of every piece.
Inspired by the New Brunswick north shore and then the west coast of British Columbia where I’ve been raised, I’ve been in love with the beauty of coastal landscapes; the movement of water in waves, waterfalls, skies and seascapes. In my artistic journey I am blessed to have been befriended, mentored by and painted with the renowned Hawaiian oil painter Roy Tabora. I truly am in my happy place with brush in hand, music playing and an Irish whiskey at my side.
