The Alliance has developed an Artist Roster, a database (including artists’ biographies, 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!

The Artist Roster is open to 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 us at or click the button below.

Jesse Beckham

I specialize in: Leather Goods

Read Bio

As someone who grew up around leather as a material applied as tools and useful objects, I learned to appreciate leather goods from an early age being present around ranching and working cowboys. By keeping to the idea of leather goods as tools, I strive to build usable and durable leather goods that are up to the standards of everyday use. In addition to durable usability, leather as a material, offers itself as a widely applicable source of beauty and modification, allowing me to dress up items with carving, tooling, or other decoration; changing a bag from a durable everyday carry item, into a unique, beautiful and personal everyday carry item.
Additionally, leather’s versatile uses and applications allow me to push my creative side with new and unique custom pieces.

From client requests, to my own personal projects, starting with a bare side of leather and mine and my client’s imaginations, the creation of an item is pure joy. It doesn't matter if an item is an intricate 6 month custom client build or a one day retail item build, all of my products are built by my hands and meant to be used.

Joshua Bradley

I specialize in: Painting, Segmented woodturning, Silversmithing and Lapidary

Read Bio

As long as I can remember I have always been drawn to art and handmade objects. As young person I spent hours and hours drawing, taking apart discarded objects and building with Lego blocks. I also loved visiting the library. Often times I would take home books on art, animals, machines and other sorts. I would often wander up and down the aisle looking for books that would catch my eye. One such book was “The Living Tradition of Maria Martinez”. I was fascinated by her and her family’s pottery. Years later after working as a carpenter and bringing home scrap pieces of exotic woods. I decided to try segmented woodturning.

I especially love western and Southwest art in all its forms. My leather work, drawing and Oil paintings, my lapidary and silverwork all are heavily influenced from that love to a heavy degree.
