Artist Robert Phelps believes color is the magical bridge between the apparent and the unseen worlds. For him, color is a language that speaks universally and yet remains infinitely personal. His bold, energetic paintings reflect his deep affinity with the natural world and fascination with the wilderness of his Appalachian roots.

A self-taught artist, Robert enjoys exploring the intuitive and painterly techniques reminiscent of the expressionist and fauvist traditions. Phelps's poetic depictions of pets, animals and people all share a romantic and intimate vision of his subjects, connecting what the eye sees to what the heart feels.

Currently living in the North Carolina mountains, Robert continues exploring new and innovative visual experiments to celebrate his love of nature and animals.

Robert has been a professionally exhibiting artist since 1996 and his work is collected both nationally and abroad.
