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.

Below, you’ll find some incredible artists from in and around Garland that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Creating art seems to be “in my blood”. My grandfather was a sculptor who taught in the Sorbonne in Paris as well as the U. S. Since I was old enough to grasp a crayon, I was always drawing. Wonderfully, my father was very influential in pursuit of this passion. Read more>>
