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.

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>>

Aneesha Smith

Because a lot of the anime in circulation doesn’t feature prominent characters of color, their drawings really didn’t reflect them. I wanted to see that they had options in the artistic realm. So I started Reflections by Zana to showcase more options of art that they could relate to and ultimately emulate. Read more>>

Trae Perry

My father introduced me to this upcoming music duo in the city called Beat Boy Entertainment. They had a home studio in their mother’s beauty shop, which is where I recorded my first official single entitled “I Blaze”. That summer I released it online and my entire community of friends and family took notice. From that moment forward I knew what I wanted to make of my career. Read more>>

Khalil Johns

I try to do my best to make as much of a positive impact in the world around me and be a positive example to my students and the next generation coming behind me. My goal is to make a positive impact so big that I leave this world in a better place than it was when I entered. Read more>>

Carly Miranda

I come along so many talented people every day; it’s truly amazing to see how creative other people can get! As far as my artwork, I hope people see the effort I put into my shoots. The majority of the time, I’m the one doing my own hair, makeup, and styling so to just see me as a pretty face would be a major let down. Read more>>
