Thought-Provokers: Katy

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

But 6 years ago, I got my first DSLR camera and it was almost instantly that I recognized all my passions, the graphic design, the painting and the technology all in one place: in Photography. Read more>>

My story began back in 2012 when I attended a music festival in Las Vegas called EDC.

I am a person who believes in working hard and dedicating yourself to accomplish your dreams. That defines me, I always give 100% at everything I do.
