Phil Starke

1957 –

Quiet Walk

Phil Starke (1957-) became interested in art as a child living in Germany where he had the opportunity to enjoy the great masters in the museums of Italy and Germany. Committed to traditional painting styles, Phil Starke studied at the American Academy of Art in Chicago, the Art Institute of Chicago, and Central Missouri State University over seven years. Travel has allowed Starke to stay fresh, preferring to paint en plein air, in a style of realistic impressionism of landscapes and figures, with many of them being of southwest subjects. He spent much of his life in Kansas City, Missouri, and in the 1990s, he and his wife Shari moved from Kansas City to Tucson, Arizona because he was attracted to the passion for the arts that he found in the Southwest.Starke has exhibited at the American Artists Professional League in New York, the Pastel Society of America in New York, the Arts For the Parks in Jackson Hole, the Berger Sandzen Museum, the Plein-Air Tucson in Tucson, and the Thomas Gilcrease Museum.
