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 Fort Worth that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

I’m a performer behind the camera and any emotion being conveyed at the moment the camera clicks will be captured forever in a single image. I think that’s incredibly powerful. Read more>>
My journey with face and bist painted started about 12 years ago. My friend Cindy needed a face painter because theirs cancelled. Since I occasionally painted murals she thought I could face paint. Read more>>
soon realized that my cartoon work was too easy for viewers to interpret. I began to create pieces that focused on color and shape. It has been a fun challenge that I have yet to get tired of. Read more>>
Drawing has been my escape from the pressures of life sense I was a child. I’ve been tattooing for 7 years now, and piercing for 10 years. In my free time I like to make my own natural color pigments for painting. Read more>>
