Phyllis Kohring Fannin is a printmaker/painter, retired from her collegiate and high school art teaching assignments. She graduated from Mount Union College and has her Masters in Studio painting from Kent State University. She taught alternative/nontraditional printmaking processes, part-time at the Cleveland Institute of Art.

Fannin’s prints often incorporate temporary print matrices and experimental techniques. The pursuit of emotional aspects of life have been ever present in her oeuvre.  With the deployment of her sons to war zones, her focus became imagery that reflected the anxiety and uncertainty that military families endure.

Fannin is the recipient of numerous awards, grants and a print residency to Dresden, Germany, with the Ohio Arts Council. Her work has been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions both nationally and Europe, as well as in corporate and private collections.
