Artist Roster

The Spokane Arts artist roster is a searchable tool designed to showcase local creatives and connect them with community members seeking artists and makers. Browse the entire roster to discover a new favorite artist or filter by the type of work you’re seeking. You’ll find samples of their work, a description of what drives them to create and links to check out their website or social media. Use the roster to discover the incredible talent living right here in our community.  

In order to foster a thriving creative community where artists can make a living doing their work, Spokane Arts believes in the importance of paying artists. Too often, creatives are asked to provide time, labor, materials, or finished work for free. While most of us wouldn’t ask an electrician, CPA or nurse to provide their professional services at no cost — knowing they trained and studied to gain expertise — artists are often asked to donate their services. Many artists and creatives do choose to donate their time to causes they care deeply about, but to make a living, doing work for free should be the exception, not the rule. We humbly ask you to keep this in mind when contacting creatives on the roster, and know that you can always ask an artist to give you a cost estimate or written proposal to review. Questions? Don’t hesitate to ask our staff; we’d be happy to help guide you. Contact mika@spokanearts.org.

Artist
Nathan Schnebly

Nathan Schnebly’s drawings are a visual reflection of his time as a graffiti artist and love for illustration. His images often showcase his 25+ years of drawing every day with most of Nathan’s work involving pen & ink with graphite and applied to various mediums. His spray paint work has also had a huge impact on his artistic life and he has begun utilizing spray paint in murals throughout the northwest. Being open to different art forms has given Nathan a broad perspective on the arts allowing him to mix different art forms together to create new styles and unique works of art. His goal is to bring the feel of his street art to the every day viewer.

Artist
Tiffany Patterson

I identify as an optimistic, empathic, queer night bird who has a complicated romance with danger. My candy-coated color palette has seeped out of the studio and I’ve wholeheartedly committed to it as a lifestyle. This may be deceiving though, as my work also holds a secret darkness. I am a procrastinator who thrives under pressure. My work is playful and uses repetition of patterns as visual texture and meditation; often loosing myself and painting for hours on end.
