About the Artist
Philip Galley spent most of his adult life in Africa. His early years were
spent working for International advertising agencies in Nigeria and Kenya as
a senior member of their Creative Departments. His training began at a
very young age at Moseley School of Art and was completed at Plymouth
College of Art where he studied Fine Art, Lithography and did a Post
Graduate course in Photography and Graphic Design.
He painted throughout his life but began his career as a wildlife artist in
earnest when he returned to the UK in 1993. He missed the spectacular
scenery, the skies, the warmth and open spaces of Kenya and began to paint
wildlife in his garage in Hampshire. He published Limited Edition prints of
African wildlife which sold well and held workshop exhibitions in the north
of England. He achieved success at Christie’s Wildlife Art Auction, The
Mall Gallery in London, On Line Gallery Southampton, Marwell Hall
Winchester and other venues.
He had an opportunity to return to Kenya in 2000 and made his permanent
home there. He exhibited original work every year and has produced high
quality prints and cards in Kenya as he wished to make art more affordable
to those who cannot afford original work. In 2001 Philip started a company
called The Leo Collection Ltd producing images, cards and prints, for the
local and international market.
Philip worked until his death in 2017 in Nairobi Kenya, and the Leo
Collection is now run by his son, Alexander.
