The premiere online destination for artifacts, culture and antiquities.
Jessica Lindsay Phillips is Director of the Billy Jamieson-Niagara Falls Museum Collection, the most remarkable assemblage of rare ethnographic antiquities and curiosity case ephemera in Canada. A trader in shrunken heads, mummies, medieval torture devices, Victorian corsets, tribal weaponry and contemporary art, Jessica has scoured Turkish bazaars and Parisian antique markets in pursuit of rare objects. This pursuit landed her a co-starring role on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) series Four Rooms, where she served as a buyer—accessing and acquiring some of Canada’s most desirable household treasures—and more previously a role on History Channel’s series Treasure Traders.
Jessica supports the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, and has worked with and donated to exhibitions at the Royal Ontario Museum, TIFF and the Mütter Museum. Studied in Art at Ryerson University, she is also a Fellow of The Royal Canadian Geographical Society and a Member of the Explorers Club. Whether digging for dinosaurs in Alberta’s Badlands or exploring the latest tribal art fairs around the world, JLPhillips.com will offer insight into Jessica’s adventures—serving up dispatches from abroad, travel tips and the chance to purchase some extraordinary curiosities along the way.
