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

  • Though I studied art at SMSU in the early 70's, I ended up in the blood banking business for nearly 28 years. One morning I woke up, felt as though life was just passing by and it was time to make a statement. I wanted to paint. While searching the internet, I found lineart on a website, enlarged it to 18 x 24 and started my journey. I couldn't stop; it was so enjoyable to create my own special worlds of elves, fairies and many blue dragons (with an occasional green one). It reminded me of my youth--searching the woods for mythical creatures. Now over a year later, I have completed over 30 paintings, many given away as gifts. Friends and family thought I should share.

  • I love how a tiny line applied to a smile or eyebrow or how one speck of color can change the whole perspective of a painting.
