Artist Roster view_module list
The Alliance has developed an Artist Roster, a database (including artists bios, areas of expertise and contact information) of area artists and art education professionals to build a broad and culturally diverse database of artists and arts entrepreneurs in our community.
The Alliance Artists Roster is a service to schools, libraries, arts organizations, event organizers, businesses and other service providers in our area who often want to engage creative folks and artists to work with them. And of course – we want to bring more visibility to the artists who live and work in our community!
We are open to include any area artist who feels they have arts experiences to share, as long as they provide the necessary information and can define what they have to offer.
To submit your information – or to let us know of artists in the community that we should include, contact is at firstname.lastname@example.org or click the button below.
Jonathon is an assistant professor of media arts in the Mass Communication department at Midwestern State University. He received his Master of Fine Arts in documentary production and theory from the University of North Texas. Over the past six years, Jonathon has taught television, audio, film, and media studies courses at UNT and at Stephen F. Austin State University. In the field, Jonathon has worked on documentary films, in radio stations and newsrooms, and on numerous television shows. He spent two years working for the Southwest's largest production company, AMS Pictures. While at AMS, he logged time as a director of photography, an associate producer, a research analyst, a director, and a development producer, working on established television shows and helping build new ideas.
Much of his professional work has been focused on the human side of society's most difficult social issues, from the caring environments of LGBTQ churches in the heart of Texas to biographical looks into child abuse. His current documentary takes an observational look at the racial justice movement in Madison, Wisconsin, a city with the widest disparity gap in the country. Jonathon's creative research centers on multimedia production, and his documentaries have screened at film festivals and conferences both nationally and internationally. His recent academic research looks at the topic of ethical documentary filmmaking in an industry that is exploitative by nature.

I currently attend Midwestern State University as an Art Major. I have been dancing for 6 years focusing on jazz, tap, ballet, hip hop, modern, and lyrical dance. I also have been vocally trained for 15 years. I am always eager to teach and work with others to help them find their inner artist. I currently train with the Wichita Falls Youth Ballet and actively audition for shows at both Backdoor Theatre and Wichita Theatre.

I was raised in Henrietta/Clay County, TX. While working in West Texas for the Boy Scouts of America, I started telling my family about all of the ghost towns and cool abandoned things that were around. My parents asked that I start taking pictures and bought me a cheap digital camera. Everyone started saying "wow, you've got a great eye". Since that time in 2003, I have purchased better equipment and learned more and more about techniques, editing and just photography in general.
I call my style rusty and crusty. I mostly take photos of landscapes, abandoned things like cars, trucks, barns and houses and occasionally a few animals. Our society today likes to throw things away and go get something new. With that, we are getting rid of a lot of old things that are still around. These old cars, barn and houses are being torn down to make room for new houses or to "pretty up" the property. I endeavor to capture these abandoned things before they are gone and although I may not know their story, I have at least captured them for future generations to see what it was like.

I do pictorial carving on leather mostly in 3D. That is I take pictures and put them on leather. I have had no training in this procedure. I have won Best of Show at the East Texas Fair with a 3ft. by 5ft. reproduction of the Lord's Supper. I can usually take most pictures and put them on leather.

Paul began his work in leather craft as a Boy Scout with belts, billfolds and purses. He ventured on into pictorial carving on leather and the art of making his pictures 3D. Paul is completely self taught. He says that his master piece is a 3 by 5 foot reproduction of the Lord's Supper. The wood grain pattern that is on most of his pictures was developed by him. Recently Paul has starting doing landscapes in which the trees leaves have texture, animals have hair, and fallen logs have bark. He is constantly challenging himself to develop other techniques.

On the agent website my art is under the name Siobhan. Locally known as Sherry, I work as an attendance clerk at Barwise Middle School but hope sometime soon to be a full time artist.
