Thought-Provokers: Plano

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’m a little different than other bloggers in my area. I started off doing photography about 5 years ago and quickly realized as much as I loved the art, I didn’t want it to be my career. I wanted to do something that people could find relatable. Read more>>

Courtney Morgan

My love of photography started at a young age. I would sit with my Grandma as we flipped through albums of portraits and she would tell me stories of the people in the pictures. It was at that early age I realized a photograph was so much more than a piece of paper. Read more>>

Amanda Alexander

Seeing my bride and grooms having their own families is probably one of the best feelings. My clients mean the world to me. They keep food in our fridge and clothes on my kids. If I could tell them thank you every single day I would. I wouldn’t have a story to share if it wasn’t for them. Read more>>

So after putting all my trust in Jesus, I quit school and opened my business all within a week span. Within just 3 months I was able to quit my hospital job at the time and go full-time with my business. I’ve never looked back. Read more>>
