headshot of Sculptor-Engraver Phebe HemphillPennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts graduate Phebe Hemphill studied for three years with sculptor EvAngelos Frudakis in Philadelphia. In 1987, she joined the sculpture department at the Franklin Mint and, for the next 15 years, worked on many projects for the porcelain and medallic departments.

As a freelance sculptor, Hemphill displayed her creative talents working with various companies producing figurines, medallions, dolls, toys, and garden ornaments. Prior to joining the United States Mint’s team of sculptor-engravers in 2006, she was a staff sculptor for three years with McFarlane Toys in Bloomingdale, New Jersey.

Hemphill’s extraordinary sculptures were exhibited by the National Sculpture Society, American Medallic Sculpture Association, West Chester University, and the F.A.N. Gallery in Philadelphia. In 2000, Hemphill received the Alex J. Ettel Grant from the National Sculpture Society, and in 2001, she received the Renaissance Sculpture Award from the Franklin Mint.
