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.

Realizing I wanted to pursue my passion for interior design, I started my own business, Laura Design & Co. As an interior designer, I am living my dream every day and still helping people, just in a different way. I truly love making homes into retreats for families and helping them love their homes and live beautifully. Read more>>

I think art reflects life, and life is beautifully mundane. This opinion has slowly crept into and (made residence) in my work. I also have my private work which consists of pieces I do not understand. It’s crazy how many I don’t understand. Now, I am here. Read more>>

Ramses Ramirez, Grant Yoder, Haley Garman, Daelon (DaeDae) Dodd, Ivan Prochaska

Nu-95 came about in 2012 when Ramses Ramirez (rhythm guitar) and Grant Yoder (lead guitar) met in high school. The two were also neighbors at the time. Ramses saw that Grant received a guitar for Christmas, and asked if he would one day come over and have a jam session. Read more>>

Writing is a journey. Characters start talking in your head, a story blossoms, you begin to type. Before you know it you’ve made an embarrassing mess all over the paper. But the voices continue and the resolve to keep writing becomes a part of you. Read more>>

My first experience in a tattoo shop I went and got a tattoo in Addison at Cat Tattoo. I just remember thinking everyone in there were like rock stars living the dream life. That really stuck with me, and a couple of years down the road I eventually got an apprenticeship at that very same shop. Read more>>

I’ve always been into photography ever since I was young. Whether it was borrowing my mom’s tiny digital camera or using the 0.7 megapixel camera on my iPod touch, I always wanted to capture images that I thought looked nice. Read more>>

With the encouragement of my family, I entered the MFA program at Texas Woman’s University. While at TWU, I was selected for Craighead Green Gallery’s New Texas Talent in 2017. Craighead Green began to sell my work, and I’ve been one of their artists since I graduated. I am very grateful I can make work that I love to make. Read more>>

I’d like to think that my story as a photographer is still being written, but thinking about how it started, I have to go all the way back to my childhood. Growing up in a war-torn part of the world, I was absorbed into the harsh realities of everyday life, and haunted by images of the people and places touched by warfare. Read more>>

Ryan Rankin

I started my life as a military brat with my father being in the Army. This gave birth to my exposure to travel, different cultures, and machines; like race cars, tanks, helicopters and fighter jest. I never really found myself as being a very smart student growing up. Read more>>
