Thought-Provokers: South East 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 South East Dallas that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Feeelgood, Mandate) for production and engineering duties. Read more>>

I’ve always dedicated my life to being there for others, being a wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend. Some of the most prestigious titles in the world, I knew that my purpose went beyond those titles. Since I was a young girl, I always had an appreciation and deep love for beauty and helping others. Read more>>


I have been drawing all of my life. At the same time, I’ve been watching horror movies my entire life. The two clearly merged at one point. Through college and at art shows I’ve enjoyed shining a fun light into strange and dark corners of horror with illustrations of “dark art”. Read more>>

Music has always been something that’s been in my blood. I grew up on a lot of Hip Hop; mainly West Coast because of my Uncle & older brothers. I moved from Saginaw, Michigan to Dallas, TX in ’96 & had a hard time trying to adjust to just about anything but playing video games. Read more>>
