PK People: Phyllis Lehman


This week's
PechaKucha People spotlight lands on PechaKucha Night Warwick organizer Phyllis Lehman. For Phyllis, art is a form of expression that goes beyond an artist and their medium. She sees it as a theraputic and life enhancing activity that everyone should enjoy and participate in. By day, she is an artist and therapist and by night, a PKN Warwick organizer, so she lives and breathes creativity! Thank you for your PechaKucha passion and we wish you the best of luck hosting PechaKucha Night Warwick Vol. 6. Keep inspiring others to be creative, Phyllis!

About the City's Organizers

  • Patricia Foxx

    I have enjoyed the continuous learning process that making art offers me. Landscapes, still-lives, and portraits have been my subjects. Sharing my vision of the world, especially nature, with people gives me great joy. As a child I was introduced to art by my father, a professional artist. I have been involved with art all through my life, creating fabric art, teaching water color techniques, and drawing and painting on my own. I professionally designed and created fabric wall hangings and clothing for 17 years and now I paint using water colors, oils and acrylics. I live in a beautiful area that inspires me to paint landscapes.
