Thought-Provokers: Gilbert

Phoenix 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 Gilbert that we hope you will check out, follow and support.

Erik Moller

Throughout the years I become more serious and dropped out of university to pursue my dream! I worked for a year to earn the money I needed to purchase all my gear, and then I quit my job to follow my dreams! I have been a fulltime filmmaker for the past 1.5 years and now. Read more>>

Lindsi Luffman

When I was in high school, I took a film (what’s that?!) photography class where we had to roll and develop our own film in a darkroom. I fell in love with the process of creating something from beginning to end and having the end result be something completely unique to me. Little did I know. Read more>>

Jim Bachmann

My favorite artists have always been the ones that don’t fit perfectly in a box or are outliers. I think I follow that path in that regard. My inspiration is the every day, day to day; seeing beauty in the things we take for granted – and knowing we’re all in this thing together. Read more>>

Charlene Gartrell

I’ve always been drawn to the pretty things in life. Makeup, fashion, art; it all screams creativity, and I can’t help but be drawn to it. I became an esthetician immediately after graduating from high school. At the time, it was more of a backup plan in case my other ones didn’t work out. Read more>>

Jackson Fink

I played piano in the school jazz band all the way up through my sophomore year. At the end of my freshman year, I had started jazz piano lessons with a well-known teacher and local artist, Raul Yanez, and I still take lessons with him to this day. Read more>>

Aubri Greene and Mckinzie Borland

We most often recreate family photos into a cross stitch family portrait, but we can make most cross stitch dreams become reality. I love creating these cross stitch pieces cause they connect past and present. Cross stitch is an art medium that I learned from my mom who learned from her mom and so forth. Read more>>

Katie Tolman

I made a delicious cake decorated with homemade white fondant with colorful fondant flowers on it. I was so proud of myself. For the next couple of years, I would make cakes for family member’s birthday, and slowly I started to get better at my craft and felt comfortable having actual clients. Read more>>

Katie Torres

I create and capture the incredible things I see around me through the use of film and digital photography. In all my work I strive to bring out the raw beauty within each individual I get to take photographs of. I hope to inspire people around me through my work, but more importantly. Read more>>

Belen and Jared Sessions

Life has become easier for us as an artist in recent years with social media being a big part of where we share our work! We motivate artists to really find your style of art and be dedicated to sharing it with the world! Cities like ours need to support creators by being involved and reaching out to different types of artists in our own area. Read more>>

Katie Mask

I love helping companies take their vision and turn it into reality. I love helping them put their best foot forward. I work closely with my clients, getting to know them as a person and their vision for their business. I do my research on their type of business and what they’re looking to accomplish. Read more>>
