Frank P. Phillips has been professionally creating art for almost 20 years. He lives with his dog Charley at Episcopal High School (a boarding school in Alexandria, VA), where he teaches Introduction to the Arts, Painting, Drawing, Photography, AP Studio Art, and Art History. He received his BA with High Honors from Hobart College in 1997 and received his MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2005.
At Hobart, Phillips was a decorated member of the Men’s Varsity Soccer team. Currently, he is an avid squash player. At Episcopal, Frank Phillips utilizes his athletic experience to coach soccer and squash. His passion for competition and physical activity directly influences his artwork.
