I gotta confess. I love living and working as an artist in Dallas.
I’ve lived here more or less since I was five, and my family grew up here. While I’ve had short to longer stints in Winston-Salem, DC, Seville, Murano, and most recently Chicago, Dallas is still the place that I will always call ‘home.’
Well-known for its bustling city culture, innovation and artistic celebration, it boasts the largest urban arts district in the US, with its vibrant and breath-taking arts scene. I just love experiencing my daily fix of the city’s incredible array of world-class arts, music, and theater.
My working art studio, The ALG Collective, is located right in the heart of Dallas’ Design District on Dragon Street. There are over 30 galleries within the Design District that attract discerning collectors, interior designers and dedicated window shoppers. So if you’re looking for a unique piece of art for your home or office, the options are endless and you’re sure to find something for every style and taste.
Third Thursday Art Walk
On the third Thursday of every month (which hopefully we’ll be starting again soon), Dragon Street Galleries (@DragonStreetGalleries) organizes a stroll down the length of historic Dragon street with about a dozen galleries participating each month. This gives you a chance to browse work from your favorite artists AND visit some of the galleries that you may not have considered before, sampling a variety of the artistic talent Dallas has to offer. We’re hoping the Art Walk will continue by summertime– I’ll keep you posted.
Despite the pandemic, Dallas’ art scene has not slowed down. As artists, we’ve still been at work creating some beautiful pieces, and now that lockdown restrictions have eased, I’m super excited to be seeing y’all in person in my studio again!
You can book an in-person appointment online to browse my latest collection and get to watch me at work creating glass art from scratch.
We know that everyone is eager to experience our events at the ALG Collective and together with my fellow artists, Christi Meril, Melissa Ellis and Annie Griffeth who share the studio space, we can’t wait to bring our community back together again soon.
