After studying at Derby and Winchester Schools of Art, Phil Hogben came to Cornwall in 1969 to teach at the Falmouth School of Art, where he remained for many years.  He was a long-time member of the NSA, and served on the Council of NAG in its Centennial year (1995).

In 2000, his Apple Tree (Oil on canvas) was selected for the 20 Years of Contemporary Art exhibition at the Falmouth Art Gallery, and he commented 'My recent work has been drawn from the landscape, around the north west of Helston where I live. Once farmed by my wife's family it is an area of hills and high ground reminding me of the landscape of my Derbyshire childhood.'
