Have you met…Phillip J. Mellen?


An introduction can be a wonderful thing. You can meet interesting people, and make new friends. You can be introduced to your new favorite foods, books, music, or artist.

I’d like to introduce you to some of my favorite artists. Some of whom I’ve been familiar with for years, and other I’ve only recently been introduced to.

The artist I’d like to introduce the painter Phillip J. Mellen, and he was recommended to me by David T. Miller.

Artist Statement:

“I go to the store, I pick out colors I like and I don’t use all of them all the time”

Documented by H. B

Another thought I have had is:

“Sometimes I get so caught up in painting that I forget to paint.”
