#DallasCreatives: the local artists who inspire us

Through a mix of mediums, formats and perspectives local artists illuminate the unknown, color the previously black-and-white and add depth to our understanding of our surroundings, our lives, circumstances and more. Through our research process for the Thought provokers series we’ve come across so many works of art that have inspired us and we’d like to share some of our favorites we you below.

i feel like i talk about dreaming more than i talk about anything else on here, but it’s definitely one of the things i do most. i’ve always been a dreamer, always dreamt of living a life where i love what i do, who i’m surrounded by and i want that so so badly for each and every one of you. . so let me just encourage you for a hot second. . those big dreams of your heart, yeah, follow them. no matter how scary, crazy or unrealistic they may seem. who cares what other people think. who cares if people think your dreams are too big. who cares if people don’t think you’re ‘qualified’ by their standards. who. freaking. cares. the best and biggest dreams are always the ones no one else understands until they’re done. . so do them. take the risks. be you. stay passionate. work hard. you’ve got this. you are worthy of living a life you love!
