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.

Stephanie Jimenez

When I was a kid I was rambunctious but also really shy. My parents let me experiment with jewelry, painting, beadwork, a little sewing and even clay and was something I could turn to when I was feeling out of place in the world, which was most of the time. Read more>>

Ksenia Annis

Mostly my focus is a whimsical interpretation of the world and I strive to tell a story with every painting, Lately I became very interested in abstract realism, which is reflected in my figurative series. I regularly participate in regional and national calls for art and judged shows. Read more>>

Lisa Nelson

My infatuation with photography began at an early age. As a child I had an “Instamatic”. If you’re old enough, you might remember them? They took 110 film and had little flash cubes on the top? Well I adored mine but my family had modest means – film was expensive and processing even more so. Read more>>

Marni Wishart

My earliest memory is of making art. I was finger painting while sitting at our kitchen table and completely blissed out in the moment. When I look back on my childhood, teen years, college, and the various careers I have had – there is one common thread, and that is art. Read more>>

Amanda Blodgett

My love for all things creative stems back until I can’t even remember, but my passion for photography began as a Senior in high school. With my well-used, second-hand Pentax K1000, I dove right into film every fourth period. Read more>>

Kara Beatty

I began my business in 2016. It was a dream come true for me. As a child I would bring my 35 MM camera with film to school and take pictures of my friends. Through high school we would buy those disposable cameras and play model and photographer. Read more>>

Nikki Guest

I found myself gravitating towards high school seniors. It is interesting because I never saw myself as finding a niche that really satisfied the creativity craving; however, what does feed my soul is when the seniors have the opportunity to experience a session that is completely tailored to them and their personality. Read more>>
