Buytendorp was born in Manitoba of Dutch parents and belongs to
several generations of respected artists. He is an accomplished
outdoorsman with a deep appreciation and love of the natural
environment. Phil obtained an apprenticeship in art under his
father and his work takes great inspiration from the Group of
Seven. For the past 14 years, Phil has lived in British
Columbia, spending as much time as he can on the West Coast, where he
is often inspired by the constantly changing moods of ocean and
sky. He also explores other themes. For example, this show will
include a small but exciting selection of work from his very recent
painting trip to Algonquin Park in Ontario.
