Lee John Phillips

Lee John Phillips is a freelance illustrator, spoon carver, educator and sketchbook keeper from West Wales.

When he isn’t fulfilling client work or carving spoons, he is drawing his way through his late grandfather’s toolshed. He’s been cataloguing the contents since 2014 and has drawn over 8,500 items to date. Lee sees it as his life’s work and estimates a total inventory of around 100,000.

The Shed Project has been shortlisted for the John Ruskin Prize, The Jerwood Drawing Prize and won the Zealous Storytelling Prize for illustration.

Lee’s artwork has also been shortlisted for the Kyffin Williams Drawing Prize, Welsh Artist of the Year and Cambrian Academy. He has exhibited work across the UK and most recently, New York.

Lee has been a teacher of art and design for 13 years and is currently the Assistant Principal Moderator for WJEC & EDUCAS at GCSE and is subject lead for Art & Design PGCE at Buckingham University.

We can’t wait to see Lee return for a series of captivating wood carving workshops.
