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

  • After 17 years in the radio broadcasting industry, locally for a time at KWTO/Rock 99, I worked for the Muscular Dystrophy Association as a regional coordinator, then later became a marketing professional in the National Office of the American Cancer Society in Atlanta. While there I created, produced and syndicated Profiles in Survival, a national prime-time television special that featured well known celebrities who had survived cancer. After 12 years with the ACS I returned to the area and founded Hampton Productions, a full-service advertising agency. After devoting nearly every day to commercial graphic design, photography, writing and videography, I enjoy plunging into personal creative projects for a change such as painting, screenwriting and photography to canvas. My portfolio is composed of the latter. I have written five copyrighted, full-feature screenplays, a teleplay pilot and recently published two children's books that are now featured on Amazon. Written for ages 9-12, "Vanny V" is the story of a young vulture with a flying squirrel sidekick who convinces him to become a vegetarian and "Toby" is a large print publication that is geared to helping children deal with loss. Both are richly illustrated by my friend Marta from Poland.
