The Springfield Regional Arts Council has created a registry of artists in Springfield and our 27-county region in Southwest Missouri. The Artist Registry is compiled as a comprehensive catalogue and made available at local design trade shows and business expositions for residential and commercial purposes. Images of the artists' works are also presented in an electronic slideshow at various events and locations.

  • About Yourself

  • Much of what I do in the studio is deeply influenced by both modern and ancient art, and I revel at exploring any and all art museums hoping to infuse style and influence from other times and cultures into my work. I am particularly fond of abstract expressionism and expressionism in general for the way those styles communicate the individuality and spirit of the artist. I enjoy working in both acrylic and oil, but also like to use a combination of charcoal and pastels in my mixed media work. Recent themes in my work include: Spring Pastels, Big Women, Just Desserts, Delta Cotton, and Momentum.

  • A lifelong Missouri resident, the artist holds a BFA degree in painting and drawing, an MS in education, and has taught both art and gifted education in area schools. She is also a juried artist member of Best of Missouri Hands and the Gateway Pastel Society. Smith is an active member with work on exhibit through Visual Arts Alliance of Springfield. She is also a member-artist at Fresh Gallery, 400 W Walnut, Springfield, MO, where her work is on permanent display.
