Warwickshire Railways: Railway Art

Philip D Hawkins FGRA

A childhood spent in Birmingham surrounded by the sight and sounds of trains coupled with an enduring passion for railways influenced his decision to specialise in the subject. This fascination and a natural artistic talent have combined to make his work highly sought after worldwide. He has travelled extensively in pursuit of his quarry and drawings, photographs and notes of reference all serve to add a very personal note to his work. Philip Hawkins' paintings are widely published in many forms including Fine Art prints, calendars, greetings cards and collectors plates, and are regularly featured in magazines and books, a glorious book of his work "Tracks on Canvas" ( ISBN: 0860935388 ) was published in 1998 (and reprinted in 2001). He was a founder member of the Guild of Railway Artists and its President from 1988 until 1998 when the accolade of Honorary Fellow of the Guild was bestowed upon him by fellow members, only the third artist to be so honoured following Terence Cuneo and David Shepherd.

A number of Phil's paintings are available as prints and this is stated within the print's caption together with a link to Quicksilver Publishing for ordering online. The others are not available as prints but can be found, amongst many others, in Phil's books 'Tracks On Canvas' (ISBN 0860935388) and 'Steam On Canvas' (ISBN 9780860935926).
