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

I consider myself extremely luck. Not many go thru many years being a problem child and drop out and end up with Emmy awards and studio space. My only only secret is: give of yourself and share the knowledge you have been given freely. I am constantly wanting to share my gifts with others. Read more>>
I loved drawing when I was a kid but I can remember getting my hands on my very first comic books and knowing that THESE were what I wanted to draw. I’m one of the lucky few that just knew exactly what they wanted to do at an early age and pursued it pretty relentlessly! Read more>>
