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 shantell@spokanearts.org.

Mo Stach

Hi, I’m Mo! I’m a self-taught artist who recently started painting again (after a 15 year hiatus) to help de-stress from my technical day job. Drippy florals and colorful abstracts are what I have been gravitating towards most with my artwork. A goal is to display my work locally, and I would love to one day design a book cover, beer can label, and get into some large-format painting. I would also love to assist/volunteer with mural and other large art installations, if anyone needs a hand! After growing up in the South and previously living in NYC and Denver, I currently reside in Spokane, Washington, with my partner and two furry helpers. Besides painting, in my spare time I enjoy traveling, reading, volunteering, and mountain sports.

Feel free to contact me via email, or check out my portfolio via my website or Instagram (@MoStachStudios)!

Brandon Michael Parker

Hello! My name is Brandon aka BpzSculpts and I am a polymer clay artist that was born and raised in Spokane. I have been sculpting for about 7 years with different mediums, but mainly Polymer Clay. My work takes the cute and conventional and makes it ugly and weird. The intention isnt just to make the viewer uncomfortable but also to make them pause and think about what they are looking at/where this thing might have came from or what it can do, bringing it to life in their mind. My work can be viewed on Instagram found above, and can be purchased on my Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ShopBpzSculpts

Tasko

Graffiti belongs to the streets. And I want to put more than just my name on a canvas. I like to control the destiny of the art I create. Characters, themes of music, love, food, hip-hop. I paint little slices of my imagination. My work has evolved to include unique, emotionally charged themes which are clearly influenced by the culture
that shaped me & made me into an ever-changing artist. I recently moved back to Spokane after being a traveling Chef for 3 years. Signed a lease on an amazing art studio & I’m ready to unpack & start becoming more involved in the community & always thriving Art scene here. I’m always available for the next adventure!!

I’m a digital artist with ADHD who specializes in hand-drawn illustrations, comics, and storyboarding! I occasionally do traditional acrylic paintings as well. I was born and raised in Spokane, my grandfather’s art career was one of the things that inspired me growing up. I’m trying to kickstart my art career as best as I can. Eventually, I’d like to be able to fully support myself with art as my career. In my free time outside of my current job, I am taking care of my Shiba Inu named Nyva!
