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 started Troubadour Botanicals officially in February of 2017 with only 7 products. I went to Paul Mitchell and worked as a hairstylist for years before transitioning over to the skincare side of things but when I started TB I was honestly just having fun and creating natural and vegan formulas that would help repair my super sensitive skin.
