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.

Helping Others Find the Artist Within and Beauty in Everything - At this time I don't have a studio for instruction but I hope to soon. In the past, my studio provided art experiences for adults and youth (usually junior high and high school aged) with no experience necessary. It was a non-judgmental atmosphere where one found encouragement to explore the artist within us all. Pottery is my medium of choice, but I have instructed other art mediums as well, such as painting, drawing, cut paper and more. For adults and teens, I have offered a time with friends that adds a creative spark to a typical night out with a social, hand building pottery or canvas painting experience. On my own, I work mostly with the medium of clay, but am still on a journey to find myself as an artist. I enjoy creating most forms of art.
