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

Sometimes I feel like I’ve lived several lifetimes within one, so it is hard to summarize my story in just a few words. I can remember back to my very first few years of life when my dad taught me how to create art by simply doing sketches and asking me to color them in when he was finished. Read more>>
I realized my favorite moments captured were the moments I didn’t plan. The laughter, the tears, the love, and the chaos of everyday life. Fast forward to senior year of college, when I booked my first senior portrait session. Read more>>
I want my students to expand their conceptions of Art and literature. It’s important to be all encompassing so that we might start breaking down certain prejudices we might have been instilled with at an early age about what constitutes high art. Read more>>
As a prop stylist, I work to design and style images for home decor, restaurants and lifestyle brands.

I’ve always loved music but never thought I would be able to be an artist. It was once I wrote for others and had to show them how it’s supposed to go that I realized I am an artist.
