Associate Professor Todd Lowery has been with Drury since 1994. He teaches Foundations of Design, Drawing, Painting I, II, & Adv. Study. He has also taught two years of Alpha Seminar and numerous directed studies. He is Co-sponsor for Free Association and Coordinator for Foundations of Design.

Todd has exhibited his work nationally. He designed and painted "The Sounds of Springfield", as part of the downtown Springfield mural project. While he works primarily in painting and drawing, he does not define himself by the different media he utilizes. His earlier work also includes installation, sculpture, and photography. In his current body of work, he examines the language of stereotypical imagery depicting "hillbillies" prevalent in early to mid-twentieth century popular culture. Prior to joining Drury, Todd worked as a graphic designer for Heer's Department stores, Andy's Frozen Custard, Raven Press Publishing, and as a Free lance designer.
