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 am a mother, wife, friend, teacher, sister, artist who lives life and makes art in the Missouri Ozarks.

  • We expect children to learn and grow everyday. I think it is important for us, as adults, to also put ourselves in that same role of learner and student. It has been interesting to witness my discomfort, and also pride, as I grow with each completed piece. As I embrace new challenges, I think I become a better teacher, mother, and liver of life. I love how the completion of one difficult project leads me to accept even more challenges. I love growth over time and the pouring out of expression and beauty through art.
