Biography

Phyllis Gordon’s practice in drawing and printmaking is an observational engagement with our natural environment. Her work is informed by time spent outdoors and her concern about the urgent risks facing the natural world. 

As a young woman, Gordon studied art in Vancouver, Montreal and London, England. In the mid 1970’s, she pursued her social justice passion and studied law. She practised as a public interest and community-based lawyer in Ontario for over three decades.

Gordon’s work has been included in group, two-person and solo exhibitions in Ontario, including Visual Arts Mississauga, Satellite Project Space, London, Artworks Oakville, Colborne Art Gallery, Propeller Gallery and John. B. Aird Gallery, Toronto. She is a member of Propeller Gallery and Open Studio Printmaking Centre in Toronto and Print London in London, Ontario.
