2024 Guest Judge:  Phillip Pomroy

Meet Phillip Ross Pomroy, born on October 24th, 1947, in Paddington, Sydney. His upbringing was shaped by his father's service in World War II and later as a respected Police Officer, leading to a childhood spent in various towns across New South Wales.

At 14, Phillip discovered his artistic talent, setting him on a lifelong journey of creativity. Despite training as a watchmaker, his passion for art led him to diverse career paths, including managing swimming pools and delving into sign writing and commercial art during off-seasons.

Phillip's debut exhibition at Werris Creek Golf Club marked the beginning of a successful artistic career, with showcases in galleries across NSW and prestigious venues like Peter Doyle at Watson Bay. His work has earned him accolades at the Royal Easter Show and victories in esteemed competitions like the Red Cross Art competitions in Currabubula.

Now residing in Urunga on the Mid North Coast, Phillip's art is characterized by clarity and intricate detail, capturing the essence of his subjects. His contributions extend beyond the canvas, with involvement in community projects like embellishing the new Tamworth Hospital building with his art.

As a father and grandfather, Phillip finds inspiration in family, adding depth to his artistic journey. His paintings, spanning landscapes, still life, portraits, and contemporary works, are cherished in collections worldwide, showcasing his talent and dedication to the craft.
