Edgar John Bernard Phillips was born in London (1970).
He attended Solihull School, Bournville Art college and studied Architectural Glass at Wrexham.
He gained a seven year apprenticeship at John Hardman Studios training in all aspects of stained glass design, manufacture and restoration. He specialised in design and painting and became Studio Manager.
As a freelance artist and designer he travelled extensively through Africa, Australasia, The Americas, Asia and Europe, eventually settling in his home town London to run his own design and stained glass business.
He specialises in new commissions of stained glass, sculpture and lighting, where possible incorporating rescued and restored antique glass.
He currently lives in Wells, Somerset.
When not in the studio he is an Actor and Script writer.
He is married to Rachel Phillips and has a son, Edgar.
Happiest when with his family on long road trips exploring the west coast of America, visiting friends in California and Oregon. Most relaxed when taking an evening stroll in Provence.
