About this artist

Phil Bob Borman is an accomplished painter and sculptor and has been a professional artist since 1986. His passion for cloudscapes lends itself well to plein air and studio painting. His enduring spirit and highbrow humor are reminiscent of his lifelong admiration for Will Rogers. When asked about his art, Phil Bob states:

“I have been painting clouds and skyscapes for the last ten years. I haven’t even scratched the surface of all that I want to explore in this genre. When I first decided to focus on painting clouds, a good friend asked me if I was afraid of being pigeon holed. My response was that when I pick what I paint, it’s not a pigeon hole but a passion. I feel great joy with each and every painting. My goal is to illustrate the glory of what God shows us each and every day, in each and every sky.”

Phil Bob was born and raised in Texas. His passions for art began at the age of 14 when he began drawing. He came home one evening and drew until the sun rose. He knew that morning that he would become an artist. Borman attended Sul Ross State University in Alpine, Texas where he earned a Bachelor of Fine Art Degree with a minor in Animal Science. He made a living “cowboying” on ranches in West Texas and New Mexico until 1985 when he moved to Ft. Davis and started his art career. Three years later, Borman felt called to full time ministry. In 2003, he felt it was time to once again pick up his brushes and start painting. Phil Bob now paints full time and lives in Fredericksburg, Texas.
