Springfield artist wins statewide stamp contest

SPRINGFIELD — Autumn in Lane County came and went, painting our sidewalks with rich oranges, deep reds, and moody yellows. The air is crisp and clear. It has what longtime Springfield resident and wildlife artist Marissa Gibson calls, a “quiet peace to it.” 

The Pacific Northwest has always provided vivid fodder for creatives – with a tactful blend of muted gray-greens from Ponderosa pines, and the gold of dry grasses turning, endless inspiration is right in our own backyard. That is, if you know where to look. 

Gibson was born and raised in Lane . . .
