Thought-Provokers: Sugar Land

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

Danielle Metcalfe-Chenail

I just love the written word, and I have devoured books since I was little, so it makes sense that I devote my life to writing stories – my own and other people’s. I started freelance writing and editing with my middle school newspaper back in Canada and wrote angsty poetry and songs when I was a teenager. Read more>>

I am from Atlanta, Georgia but was raised in Houston, Texas. This would be my first time in any type of magazine article, and I am pretty excited for this opportunity. I don’t do any type of art, but I do personal training. I am an upcoming trainer in the Houston area with hopes of changing as many lives as possible. Read more>>

Brayan Sanchez

When I was 13-14, I would film and take pictures of my friends. Hitting 16 years old, that’s when I realized it’s something that I wanted to do because it came in so naturally, and I felt that it was my calling. So, I came up with “ A Purplehaze Visuals “ to start off my legacy. Read more>>

Gabe ‘Danger’ Dang

I have grown as an artist greatly from being able to train with and learn from originators of popping and my own contemporaries. As I continue my path, I hope to continue to give back more to my own local community. Read more>>

Ally Green

Portraiture, Live show, and Landscape are the main categories I stick within my craft. My work means everything to me; it is the way I express and maintain my presence. My work is my own view on the world whether it’s a person, place, or thing, and usually apart of my most colorful ideas that are brought to life. Read more>>

John Bogna

Freelancing found me by accident: it was the first work I got after coming to Texas, and I kept on getting it. Now, I’m trying to build a full-time freelance business around my skill set. When I’m not working on a copywriting piece, an article, or a shoot, I’m writing fiction and poetry. Read more>>

Jason Carothers

As I got older, writing stories slowly morphed into creating simple home videos. I fell in love with film making, and since then I’ve been shaping and honing my film making and my photography, trying my best to present the world around us in a unique and thought-provoking manner. Read more>>

Adrian Buentello

I love being able to express a message of confidence in the things I wear which others who see my feed will take and apply it to themselves in their personal way. What I always preach and hope people take away is that “labels” and “brand” isn’t what makes an outfit stand out but your own interpretation of the actual clothing. Read more>>

Lourdes Maria Ong

I was awestruck by the glory of what a human being had accomplished with his passion, skills, and bare hands. I dedicated myself to the Visual Arts from that moment on. Drawing and painting became my focus after witnessing the transcendental realm of Art. Read more>>

Hailee Jane

I create art to pay thanks to God and communicate to others that anxiety and depression can be overcome. I really want people to know others feel the way they do and that their emotions are valid. I use clay, paint, photography, and foam to communicate what I’m feeling through the human form, flowers, and the use of color. Read more>>
