Johanna Cox


Johanna is a Technology Team Lead at Veterans United Home Loans. She is passionate about all arts and believes that the more exposure we have to new ideas, art, and other cultures the more interesting life will be!

"In my life I have been a potter, a photographer, an actor, a musician, an art events specialist, and I am most happy showing my creativity through food!"

Rebecca Allen


Rebecca Allen Photography was established in 2010, specializing in documentary/storytelling photography. Some of her recent work includes local, national and international weddings; branding photography for local small businesses; marketing and event photography for various departments at MU and Stephen's College; documentary coverage of festivals including Unbound and the former Roots N Blues festival. Rebecca was also Photo Team Coordinator for the True/False Film Fest for four years as well as a general volunteer many other years. She's currently in her 14th year as the production photographer for the MU Theatre Department.

Rebecca enjoys being involved in the community and if she can lend her talents to help further the arts here in our beloved little city, she's all about it! It's no accident that her studio is located in the heart of the North Village Arts District, in Orr Street Studios, where she's surrounded by over 25 local artists who are full of inspiration and creativity!

Rebecca's son took some art classes at Access Arts when he was younger and Rebecca's just recently learned of their "Date Night" classes which she plans on signing up for! "I'm honored to be involved in this year's CelebrARTy and look forward to helping raise funds for this incredible organization in our community," she says.

Chase Thompson


Chase is an
Associate Professor of Film at Stephens College. He's also a musician. (goes by Tampsen), and has a new album out this summer.

Chase believes we are all creatives. All artists. We get hung up on what art is but really it's just creating something that wasn't there, a connection, a conversation, a glaze or a film. "Access Arts helps children and adults alike create, so we are in perfect alignment and I'm excited to get involved," he says.
