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

From this intuitive, archaic geometry I contrived a kind of proto-perspective, not entirely unrelated to that on the caves or in many a’ Pharaohs’ tomb. Read more>>
When in college, I chose to major in Psychology and worked for a time in the geriatric field before married a Navy man and moved around the county and raised three boys. I loved new places and decorating our homes so I began to study interior design. When taking an art class focused on painting scenes on furniture, my focus turned to painting on canvas. I was hooked and knew I had found my passion. I have not stopped since and it has been twenty-five years. Read more>>
I’m forever grateful for everything that’s been going on in my life. Even though I’ve only had my license for six months, I know my number will rise because I don’t only just do hair. I always put extra tender loving care into the hair. It’s always been my passion for giving hope when it’s needed. Read more>>
As a painter, I strive for my audience to get a sense of newfound excitement for nature that they can take away & apply to their life. I love looking back at the evolution of my work. Read more>>

What drew me into photography is familiar to the stories of many fellow photographers I’ve met; my children. However, the deep need to document their little lives from birth stems from the lack of photographs I have to reminisce over my own childhood. Read more>>
