Meet George Phillips

George Phillips is the owner of Artistry With Wood by G.L. Phillips

“If you like the great outdoors, Williams Lake is paradise,” says artist George Phillips. The lake is one of Williams Lake’s most visible gems, but there are many more that one might not see just driving through town, like Scout Island, so close to town and yet so filled with natural beauty and wildlife. George gets some of his inspiration for his various woodworking pictures and other projects from the bounty of the Cariboo-Chilcotin’s natural setting and of expansive forest land. His pieces often depict scenery and wildlife that can be found right here in the Williams Lake area. George gets a lot of enjoyment out of the outdoors, both by implementing it into his art and by participating in his favourite outdoor recreation activities like fishing. He is also an amateur nature photographer.

George has lived in Williams Lake since 1984 and has strong ties to the area. Not only is it rife with outdoor beauty and all of the activities that come with it, it is also home to many incredible people. “People here are friendly, helpful, respectful,” says George. Plus, the casual pace makes for a low-stress lifestyle that can’t be beaten.

George has always had a particular fascination with wood and has been working with wood for many years. It is a hobby as well as a business for him. Not only does it give him a creative outlet, it has also afforded him the opportunity to meet people from all the world. Some of his pieces have made their way to purchases and collectors in other countries and within other parts of Canada.
