Thought-Provokers: 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 North Dallas that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

I had always loved the idea of being tattooed but, much like many tattoo artists I know, I had never actually planned on being an artist myself. I was going to be a neurologist!

I have dabbled in pottery, cross stitching, acrylics, pastels, sewing, sculpting, oil on canvas, good, old fashioned pencil on paper and everything in between.
