Welcome to Phyllis’ online gallery

Phyllis Benson was a Toronto painter, and also a mother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend to many of us. She passed away on February 5, 2007, following a 25 year battle with breast cancer.

This site serves as a memorial to her life and art.

• Some of Phyllis’ favourite paintings are displayed here. Visitors are encouraged to contribute their impressions, memories and stories in the comments section. For more information about future development of the site, click here.

• The Phyllis Benson Art Fund has been established by The Fairlawn Neighbourhood Centre to advance Phyllis’ commitment to both social outreach and the fine arts. You can contribute to the fund by making a memorial donation or by purchasing a painting. All proceeds will go to the fund. For more information about The Phyllis Benson Art Fund, click here.
