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.

King Cater

I’m self-taught with pretty much everything except one semester in college when one professor decided to teach me why I was doing the things I was doing instead of just watching me. I actually failed art in high school because I was bored learning the color wheel for the eleventh time and only finished pieces. Read more>>

One day, I came home from school and found my mother decorating a chocolate cake. She tells me I asked her if I could try to make one of the little flowers she was attempting to master and a few minutes later, the result was a perfect little rose. At that moment, she decided I would have art lessons and at the age of eight, signed me up with a local artist. Read more>>

I can talk about art & the techniques I employ all day long. I love interacting with the public. I mostly enjoy spreading the message behind my art = we are all perfectly imperfect. I volunteer in high schools & other public forums to share this idea. Read more>>

The Blind Owls

After nearly three years spent of constant performances around Texas and festivals around the country ferociously banging out an authentic Rock n’ Roll repertoire with passion and fury each performance, 2015 saw the release of their 8 song debut EP ‘The Blind Owls Say Goodbye, followed by their 14 song debut album ‘All Day and Night’ in 2017. Read more>>

My work caught the attention of an agent, Jennifer Rofe, and in 2011, my first middle-grade novel, HOW LAMAR’S BAD PRANK WON A BUBBA-SIZED TROPHY was released! Since 2011, I’ve published four more middle-grade novels, including a series, THE MAGNIFICENT MYA TIBBS. Read more>>

It all started with a wooden jumping jack. Never mind that now, the jack is scattered all around my organic garden and the fields where goats are slowly chewing herbs. He fulfilled his mission. He inspired me to take up polymer clay and play with it (creating my own version of the jumping jack). After a few years of adventures in polymer clay, I got a Eureka moment and incorporated embroidery into my works. I love textiles, I’ve always been, so it sort of ‘stayed’ with me up to now. Read more>>

When I was younger, my mother really encouraged my love for art and creativity. From little projects, we would do out of the books she’d buy or the tv shows we enjoyed. I knew I wanted to be an artist from early on. I think my love for photography started back when my mom would buy me those disposable cameras and let me take pictures of whatever I wanted, and then she would get them developed for me. We went through so many of those. Read more>>

I have always been interested in art and making things. For years, crafts and gardening and even remodeling houses filled my creative urge. But this latest chapter began when I started thinking about retirement. How to fill my days and stay active? Read more>>

I’ve been able to focus on my business full time and it has blown up! I feel blessed to be the recipient of American Society of Interior Designers awards and for the ability to provide beautiful livable designs to my clients. Read more>>

I never really made the connection to drawing until I was in middle school and high school. Art had become my identity. I have always been soft-spoken, so I always strived so hard in the arts since high school. It became the only way I could be loud and speak my mind. Read more>>
