Thought-Provokers: Far North Dallas

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 was born and raised in south Louisiana. The fourth of six children, growing up in a family of diverse interests. Our parents nurtured and supported all of us in a loving home environment.

Lizzi Trumbore

I fell in love with the idea of being able to be creative and free through improvisational music, so I think it was only natural that I started to gravitate more towards playing and singing jazz. Read more>>

Erik Clausen

I feel this anecdote accurately describes how I not only got into photography, but the process of developing my skill and artistic voice. I have no training, had no mentor, I just bought a camera, started shooting, and began ‘figuring it out’. Read more>>

From an early age, my teacher and mentor, Gustav Likan, instilled in me the desire to create beauty through color and form, regardless of the subject matter.
