Dallas has always had an artistic soul. The culture and heritage of our city, like most great cities, owes a tremendous debt to the arts community. Supporting local art is something we care deeply about and we’d like to do everything we can to help the local arts community thrive. Unfortunately, too often media attention is monopolized by corporate interests and tabloid gossip – but culture doesn’t come from a focus on celebrity breakups it comes from a focus on the arts.
Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Far North Dallas that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

I didn’t always know I wanted to be a designer. I didn’t even know that was a viable career option growing up. I just knew I wanted to do something creative. My aunt is an artist and my grandmother is a crafter and they both always encouraged my creativity. Read more>>
I shifted my business from freelance design to a product-based business featuring a small line of paper goods that boasted really weird and funny greeting cards, art prints, notepads and more. I first began selling my cards on Etsy and have been illustrating new products ever since. Read more>>

It’s hard to imagine looking at me now but I used to be a stockbroker. It was during the Financial Crisis of 07-10 and it formed a lot of my views about the world in which we live.

Goat Stampede, Christian “Summercamp” Dille, Corey “Supersnack” Littlejohn, Adam “Mudcat” Metzger
Christian and Adam started playing together in 2011 with only a guitar, a mandolin and a dream. At the time there wasn’t much of a plan other than to get together for good times and drinking beer. As time went on we thought we might be onto something. Read more>>
