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 am very excited to be engaged in Irish dance. I found this form of expression at a later age, but it has stuck with me and has become a lifelong adventure. My dedication to this performing art has taken me from studying under mentors in Germany, with family in Ireland, to studying with masters though zoom in my living room. I work closely with local Irish bands to add excitement to their local performances. Whether on tour or at a local nursing home, I focus on authenticity and inclusion. I take this passion with me into classrooms and workshops, where I share my Irish dance experiences. My projects focus on creating hope in the community through the expression of Irish dance.

I am a local eighteen year old singer songwriter located in the PNW, and I have been creating and recording music for over six years. In 2018, I released an EP entitled Lost in Translation, which has amassed over 100,000 streams on Spotify. The Chair, one of the songs from my EP, received best song of the year by a popular indie music blogger, Jason Scott. I have been featured in various music magazines including Pop Matters, Atwood Magazine, Bizarre Mag, B-Sides and Badlands, The Inlander, Grimy Goods, and The Alternative Press. For live performances, I received the “Best New Artist of the Year Award” from a local Spokane music venue, The Bartlett. I was also a featured artist at Volume, which is a local music festival in Spokane. Overall, music is invaluable to me, and I love creating it. Stay weird, support artists, and love your local music scene!

Charity Doyl

As a storyteller, my goal is to connect people with wisdom through the ancient art of story. I tell traditional tales (fairy tales, folk tales, myths, legends, etc.) from my Philippine Culture. I love insights and lessons best when they’re wrapped in funny or poignant stories. I began my storytelling journey when I became a mom and wanted to share my heritage with my children. I have curated artifacts and a library collection of Filipiniana documenting the history of Filipinos and their interactions with the surrounding countries, traders and travelers as far back as the Stone Age.
