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.

Anna Terry

I’ve been making art as long as I can remember. As a kid I started out by drawing all the time, then began painting when I was 14. My bedroom walls were great for learning how to paint murals! Read more>>

Megan Byers

I’ve truly been blessed with some of the most amazing clients and students, many of whom have become my personal friends over the years after making some of their family’s happy memories even more sweet since 2011. In fact, even through multiple moves and many instances of scheduled time off for surgeries for my husband. Read more>>

Katie Mont

I’ve been full-time freelance for 3 years now. I pride myself on being a versatile designer, which everyone will tell you not to do. I’ve just always liked doing a lot of different things so I find ways to do everything I want. Read more>>

Tyler Sloan

I think growing up in a tattoo studio expposed me to a lot of wild stuff at a young age. I remember hearing stories about bands and shows in deep ellum from the older guys at the shop and watching MTV “when It played music all the time” it influenced me a lot in both film and music. Read more>>

Betsey Gravatt

I’ve been painting for as long as I can remember. It was during my first art class in kindergarten that I decided I wanted to be an art teacher. No one else in my immediate family is an artist, but my parents were both very supportive of my love for drawing and painting. Read more>>

Allison Romero

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>>

Kat French

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>>

Jen Tallapaneni

I’ve always loved drawing, painting and creating all manner of things. I went to school for graphic/web design and worked in that field while crafting on the side until I was fortunate enough to become a Stay-at-Home Mom 5 years ago. Read more>>

Brian Lambert

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. It was during that time that I decided that I would go after what had always been my dream and pursue a career in music. Read more>>

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>>
