When you visit Basils Farm Café and Cellar Door you’ll find the walls have been turned into a mini-gallery featuring a display of paintings. Local artist Philip Butters currently has his work on display.

About Phillip Butters
“Art and painting has always been a part of my life, I have enjoyed painting form early days as a very young person and during various interludes, I have enjoyed painting, sketching and life drawing. Life and life’s pressures has often meant this pleasurable interest has often taken a back seat. However in retirement I have found time to re-embrace this passion. Joining Porta Vermella Studio in Bellbrae…..I have had time to concentrate on the development and pursuit of a personalised style”.

“Currently I am painting a series of monochromatic misty, seascapes, landscapes and cityscapes, working with the ethereal quiet of foggy days and exploring a ‘less is more’ technique to encourage the person viewing the painting to bring their own thoughts and perceptions to the experience”.

All works are for sale. Please contact Phillip at or on 0402 550 726.
