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.

Click an artist name to learn more and get a closer look at the artist's work. Artists should only be contacted for inquiries in buying, commissioning, or exhibiting their artwork.

  • About Yourself

  • I have enjoyed many forms of art. I began working in clay around 25 years ago and created hand built sculptures. I also occasionally paint and write, but my passion is assemblage art which I have been doing for the past several years. I love the thrill of the hunt for strange and unusual objects to use in my pieces.

  • My art represents a past of childhood abuse, addiction, and a life long struggle with mental illness. Trying to put things together over time, piece by piece with much thought and reflection until each piece fits precisely where I want it. It is much easier in art than in life. Art and life are one and the same to me. I hide things in my pieces as things about myself are still hidden in me, hopefully to be discovered. Putting a piece together takes a lot of time, just like putting a life back together. My time is spent searching for all those pieces in art and in life.
