Randy L Purcell is a creative artist working in the Nashville, Tennessee area. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree, in studio arts, from Middle Tennessee State University in spring of 2009.

While attending MTSU Randy was selected for the Department of Art Scholarship for Art Majors. His work was selected as part of a student exhibition displayed in Nashville’s Cummins Station Building from April 2009- April 2010. His work was also chosen in the 2009 Dogwood Arts Festival, a Regional Juried Competition in Knoxville, TN. Most recently, his work received a second place award in a National Juried Competition hosted by The Union Street Gallery in Chicago Heights, IL.

Randy did not start his career in art until he was 37 years old. This delay in realizing his dream gave him the opportunity to get many perspectives on life and the world around him. He has worked in several fields including: construction, deckhand on a tugboat, Army Reserve, retail sales, and even uranium enrichment. While this is not a great resume for someone looking for long-term employment, it is great for an artist looking to experiment with ideas and materials. Experimenting with materials and finding unique uses for them has been and will continue to be an important part of his creative process.
