  • #FriendlyFriday Shout Out Jeremy Biggers

    Jeremy Biggers is a Dallas-based artist. He attended Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts where he primarily focused on expression through graphite and charcoal drawing. During his college years he cultivated his love for painting and photography, and they’ve since cemented themselves into his everyday life. Biggers' work is shaped by experiences that inform his view of the world. His goal with each piece is to inspire conversation.
    Many murals you find around DFW are his and in February, Jeremy collaborated with Fossil to design a new watch for Black History month.

  • #FriendlyFridayShout Out Julie Shunick Brown

    Julie Shunick Brown is a contemporary artist in Dallas, TX.


    I love what she has to say about her process. “My painting evolves as life does. Currently, the process is intuitive - no preconception or idea of the end result.  The work gets more deliberate and intentional as it progresses but it develops as a reaction to what is on the canvas. I focus on composition and color and the result is a surprise that often seems reflective of life.”

  • Workshop vs Class

    There are times I wonder if a workshop is more of a one-time event that can last hours or days and is more of an intensive study, where a class is a repeated event on the same subject meeting multiple times. Does that make a difference to you?

    I realize that it doesn’t really matter but it’s just on of those things that takes up space in my mind.

  • Being an Artist

    What a great list. If only someone had mentioned this to me years ago. I was so bullheaded and thought I knew everything when I was young. Back then I called it confidence, today I call it arrogance. Even now many moons later it’s a good list to reference.

    There is way more I which I’d been told but somethings you have to find out for yourself in your own time.
