well the answer is found , A lady was researching him and my name popped up with the board. By email.  Philip Arthur jacobs

"My name is evelyn and I wondered if you had all your information for the wonderful artist Philip Arthur Jacobs - he was a Pharmacist in Port Macquarie and a great artist"

"Hello Evelyn I have his piece on my wall because I cant bear to part
with it. How did you know about my search for him?
Lee"

"Hi Lee

Well it is  story. Phil and Judy Jacobs lived in Port Macquarie and Phil was a Pharmacist for many years. I had a terrible surgery and Phil and Judy assisted me to recover from massive adhesions internally. I became friends with both. Phil had a surgery to his leg - veins and it went horribly wrong - he was in a wheelchair. Phil started a glass venture - beautiful pieces - I do not know how long he did this or if he was doing it before he came to Port Macquarie but people snapped up his pieces. Obviously when his health deteriorated he stopped and then he passed away. He was a beautiful quiet man. I was looking in a book he gave my Pharmacist daughter in 1994 and found his original Pharmacy Certificate, I then tried to google Judy who I had lost contact with but found your messageboard so just wondered if you had found the information you wanted. He was in Port Macquarie from at least 1992 onwards because that is when I met him. So have you got the right Philip Jacobs?

Regards Evelyn

"Look what I found

Look in the index of some of Phil's work (I don't think this Gallery exists anymore as I live in Lake Cathie and have not heard of it)

Regards Evelyn"
