Philip Ramsey has been painting professionally since 1991. He began as a muralist in Virginia and North Carolina and then shifted his focus to the fine art of oil portraits and original oil paintings.

His style varies from representational to impressionistic with vibrant color and bold painted strokes. His goal for the viewer is to be caught up in memory and emotion.  

Private Collectors from the United States, Canada, Thailand, and  Malawi own commissioned pieces or Ramsey originals purchased from fine art galleries. Furthermore, Ramsey has conducted workshops and taught private lessons.

Ramsey studied informally under internationally renowned portrait artist, John de la Vega, focusing on fine oil portraits.  He is a member of Oil Painters of America and The Fellowship of Christians in Portraiture.

Ramsey and his wife, Shelley, reside in South Boston, VA.  There they raised their three most captivating works of art: Joseph (1984-2002), Curt, and Wyatt.
