About the Artist….
Phillip Outten Phillip was born on the island of Grand Turk in The Turks and Caicos Islands. After attending art school in Jamaica he branched out on his own.

His paintings hang in many homes. But the soft spoken artist is also a horseman; he grew up around the horses that have roamed Grand Turk since the times of the Bermudian salt rakers. Those early settlers shipped the animals there to provide transportation. Stardust was Phillips’s first horse, but he admits that all the horses on Grand Turk have a place in his heart. He knows them all, and has taken care of and ridden many of them.After some time spent away from the islands, Phillip is back home and trying to reestablish himself. His passion for Island animals shows in his paintings. From the roaming ponies to the stray Potcakes, Phillip adds his own Island spirit to every painting he produces.
