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. Please note: the artist roster is a free resource directory to find artists. Any local artist can add their information. The artists on the roster are not endorsed or represented by Spokane Arts. 

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.

I consider myself a pixel manipulator. I specialize in digital art since I wasn’t high school. That was 30 years ago when I began my love of computer graphics.

I consider myself a pixel manipulator. I specialize in digital art since I wasn’t high school. That was 30 years ago when I began my love of computer graphics.The apps on the android play store are the main apps I use. My objective has been to produce new media using generative new media apps. I like to push the limits of the app and create things that people aren’t doing yet I guess you could say that would be influencing. I find it relaxing and calming and very exciting.

New to Spokane, I tend to call myself a diehard creative more than an ‘artist’. In the 1980’s I started a cottage industry in bas relief sculpture, both with wearable and wall art. Eventually I returned to my first love of painting, experimenting in oils and acrylic, primarily with color and composition. In those, my ‘Montana years’, I was raising my wonderful daughters as well as keeping up with the occasional life drawing class. I took classes at the U of M in printmaking, history and generally ‘expanding the mind’ as we used to say, and I still say it. Being a creative is a state of mind.

I am an artist, focusing on the intricacies of everyday life. What excites me most about what I make is that I’m on a path of discovery and exploration of paint as subject, object, material, and texture. The paintings have great depth, their surfaces have 100s of layers of paint. It wasn’t until I carved my first gouge that I was hooked. I was able to reveal the history of the painting and what was locked within. The piece had innocence and potential to be something heroic, and full of information and wonder. My love for exploring paint as object is still fueled by that single gouge, however I manipulate the pieces surface with new tools and applications.
