Markham, Philip

Website: www.philipmarkham.com

Philip Markham is a full time New Zealand Artist who lives on the Kapiti Coast north of Wellington. His work which covers a wide range of subject matter in all type of media is keenly sought by collectors both in New Zealand and abroad.

He also has wide experience in stage and costume design and has worked on many large opera and ballet productions as well as plays and musicals.

Philip Markham has been interested in painting since his school days in Dunedin. He originally trained as a ballet dancer, performing first with the Royal New Zealand Ballet and later overseas principally with the Royal Opera Ballet Covent Garden. His early experiences in the theatre and ballet world, combined with his love of art and painting, have provided an ideal background for his involvement in stage and costume design. After retiring as a dancer Philip became a teacher and was Head of the Wellington College Art Department for 15 years, before leaving in 1984 to become a full time painter and designer.

He is particularly fond of working in watercolour which he handles with clarity and assurance and has been a member of Watercolour NZ almost since it began.

He also has wide experience in stage and costume design and has worked on many large opera and ballet productions as well as plays and musicals.
