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.

Myca Williamson

The truth is, though, that G-town is where I found my desire to tell stories. I joined yearbook staff in eighth grade and fell in love with the idea of capturing moments and life’s little snippets of happiness. There was this unparalleled joy in documenting lives and watching others connect emotionally. Read more>>

Minvi Duncan

I’ve been an artist for as long as I can remember. As a young girl growing up in Manila, the capital city of the Philippines, art was a form of escapism and inspired me to dream big. Much like my love of reading English and American literature. Read more>>

Lani Khong

Since a little girl I’ve always leaned more towards the arts, I remember at the age of 8 I would draw pictures of my parents doing their everyday thing, that was my way of taking “photographs” since I was way too young to own a camera and cameras back then were a bit pricey. Read more>>

Wes Brown

I started off at the tender age of 6 drawing comic book covers with the initial desire to grow up and be a comic illustrator one day. As luck would have it though, I found myself starting an apprenticeship in 2003. Moving from shop to shop and learning from many different artists. Read more>>

M’Lynn Musgrove

I grew up watching by parents play in Rock&Roll bands around Dallas. My mom was the lead vocalist and my dad, rhythm piano.I would stay up until 1 in the morning watching them play. I would sit on the front row and sometimes even miraculously fall asleep to their music. Read more>>

Thomas Riccio

Life is full, the excitement is constant. Lots of traveling. This summer on the road for two and a half months, 36,000 miles, planetary circumnavigator. I’m everywhere and nowhere. Time and space a concept that is on its way out. Read more>>

Deborah Mushock

As a native Texan armed with a business degree, I initially pursued the corporate world; relocating first to California then to Florida. Upon returning home to Texas, I reevaluated my life’s plans and goals. While searching for my own personal dream, I expanded my artistic education. Read more>>

Mitch Wayne

So as I was growing up I spent more time in my imagination creating characters and stories than I did with anything else, then at about age 17 my brother needed someone to make him a music video, he asked me to do it and once I started I knew that this was going to be a major medium for me to express things moving forward. Read more>>

Janaye Bryant

I had become one of the top makeup artists in my city. I had chanced upon this art, but passion and the desire for mastery had helped spur this relatively fast growth. I was grateful for that but I wanted more. So a friend and I decided we were leaving and moving to Dallas. Read more>>

Peyton Stilling

I played my first open mic night, Rock 101, when I was 15 in Deep Ellum, Tx. This was the moment I defined as the “moment that started it all.” Performing gave me this indescribable feeling I knew I couldn’t let go of. Read more>>

Kendall Gary

The first 8 years of my life I lived overseas in Jamaica, Denmark and South Korea. We moved back to the US and have lived in Texas ever since. I was four years old when I started taking classical voice lessons. My mom would always sing songs with my siblings and I. Read more>>
