Thought-Provokers: The Woodlands

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.


I have always been a performer inspired by Japanese pop-culture.

My 28-year paralegal career ended in 2016, and about 6 months later I took my business full time. Every step along the way has been a dedication to serving past, present, and future clients to the best of my ability by keeping up to date with new trends and products, and developing my art to a higher level along the way. Read more>>

While a perfect Instagram feed is what we all strive for I knew I had to start promoting my business in whatever way I could, while I’m not always proud of my mismatched Instagram feed photos, and the lighting of my work seems to never be consistent I am proud of the fact that I’m doing it. Read more>>

Clay Vaughan

I naturally fell in love with all things outdoors as an awkward 13-year-old and it was through those experiences of packing through mountain ranges and stretching my comfort zones, I was placed in leadership positions within my troop of scouts, ultimately resulting in studying the Cinematography merit badge. Read more>>

I’m not working as a teacher any longer–I loved the kids, but found that teaching didn’t leave time for anything else. I was never really organized enough to do the planning and paperwork efficiently. I’d already had a career as a sign language interpreter before that, so now that’s the only “day job,” and I have more flexibility for writing time. Read more>>

Lauren Miller

Never before this experience had I felt so alive. I discovered I loved adrenaline: jumping off of waterfalls; riding on the back of motorcycles. And also wonder: visiting remote villages; soaking in crystal blue waters; trying new foods and talking to new people. Read more>>

Art can be intimidating. It takes a lot of strength not to be afraid of messing up and even more strength to share it with others. It wasn’t until I began sharing my drawings on Instagram that I learned there is no reason not to share my passion with others and offer it for sale. Read more>>

Jaycee Rose McKinzie

My passion for photography however really stuck after I had my son. Yes, I enjoyed taking the dirty-faced, first smile shots, but the first time he caught the ball as a pitcher and threw someone out on first base and turned around to grin at me I was instantly hooked! Read more>>

Kathryn Perez and Jacqui Brown

what do you think about combining our businesses?” We talked for three hours that night about this crazy new idea, and instantly knew it would be a great fit. About a month later, we made Cedar & Sage Studios, LLC an official photography business, and have been building our diverse portfolio ever since. Read more>>

Jill Targer

Much of my inspiration and ideas come from the wine-growing region and mountains surrounding my former home, as well as the life experiences I’ve had. My colorful, contemporary designs have been featured on nationally distributed products, including paper goods, stoneware, porcelain, and linens. Read more>>
