Patrick Murphy – Marketing & Press Releases

Carolyn Simon – Brown Bag Concert Hostess

Diane Tompkins – Visual Arts Consultant

Diane, an artist/designer, lives and thrives in the Westport neighborhood of Kansas City Missouri.

“I need both the fine arts and the graphic arts to fully express myself. I retired from a 26 year career as a member of Hallmark’s creative community – as a product development manager and a design studio manager, to name just a few of my roles there. But creative people don’t really retire – we just find new venues to express our ideas and ideals.

I’ve chosen to live in Westport for most of my adult life. It’s a diverse and accepting neighborhood that reflects the creative spirit of the members of Westport Center for the Arts where I proudly volunteer.”
