The Pro Artist Group Launches in December 3

Fiona Gorostiza
With an emerging haute fashion scene, many artists look for guidance in their careers, key connections in the industry, and the right places to get their work discovered.  The Pro Artist Group will play an integral part in mentoring artists to increase skill levels, opening artists to a vast network of industry professionals, and frequently hosting events for artists to be discovered.

CEO and Founder The Pro Artist Group/Paige Anderson says “I wanted to formulate a network of seasoned professionals to allow talented, up and coming artists to get their work seen and assist them in the development of a lasting career doing what they love to do. ”

Dallas’s talented artists now have a home of experienced professionals to guide them on their path to become successful photographers, videographers, make-up artists, hairstylists, fashion stylists, and many other prominent positions in the fashion industry.

To launch this new endeavor, The Pro Artist Group approached LeeAnne Locken, Lisa Petty,  Mina Chang, Fiona Gorostiza and myself to appear in a series of photographs that will be used to showcase the talents of the group.  To see the glamorous end results, you can click over to DFW Style Daily and read Lisa's post.  After 2 hours of hair and makeup for my shoot, Paige asked me if I felt glamorous like Rita Hayworth or Dita Von Teese? My reply was that I felt more like Lucille Ball! I am not a model and this shoot was definitely a new experience for me. It takes a village of professionals to make the magic happen, that's for sure!
