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

My pragmatic side caused me to choose a major in Graphic Design from Louisiana Tech University. Fortunately, my design program also encouraged and offered many opportunities for fine art electives and I began oil painting from life, both in the studio and outdoors (en plein air). Read more>>
I began practicing calligraphy and modern lettering about four years ago. I was always a doodler when I was younger, but I found myself writing words in different fonts, bubble letters, etc. over and over again instead of drawing little pictures. Read more>>
I have always enjoyed photography. I used to participate in small photo contests through my local 4-H club, but that was as far as my experience went. It was not until I began college that I discovered my true passion for the art. Read more>>
