Philippa Nihot

Philippa Nihot Philippa began teaching with Education Queensland in 1991 and is currently teaching secondary school students. Philippa loves to be inspired by the creativity of students in the children's classes she takes at Lilly-Lee Gallery. "Seeing students develop and engage with art on different levels and developing their own style, is a really satisfying part of the small groups at Lilly-Lee".

Over the years Philippa has produced art using a variety of media and techniques, but mixing different media to produce interesting results is an area of particular interest, as is conceptual art. Philippa utilises more traditional styles as well as contemporary methods of creating art.  Philippa is an accomplished portrait painter who regularly paints  commissioned portraits for gallery clients in Oils or watercolour.

Philippa teaches children's painting classes on Thursday afternoons and workshops during the school holidays.
