Louisiana is a magical place for me. Outstretched tree branches, veins in leaves, the movement of living things, natural elements mimic inner dimensions and meet my imagination are my inspiration for painting and just musing. Ideas developed from these include my passion of representing birds - playful, animated, expressive birds, interpreted and developed into new shapes, colors, patterns, and textures. Constantly alert of the enchantment of their play, feeding, and flight, I weave layers of stories in each painting. They represent the very pulsating beat of life for me. These appear in my work as symbols of exploration and growth, telling my stories and allowing viewers to connect their own stories, hopefully making people laugh with delight. Maybe you would like one of my paintings to hang in a space of your own to smile each day.
My work has sold nationally and internationally. In 2014, I was very excited to have had three acrylic paintings accepted into the Ogden Museum of Southern Arts Louisiana Contemporary exhibit in New Orleans. Currently, I am proud to be represented in the gift shops of the Louisiana State Museum in Baton Rouge, the Hilliard Museum of Art in Lafayette as well as galleries in the cities of Lafayette, Alexandria, New Orleans and Ponchatoula in my home state. My hope is that you would choose to have a print of your own. They are offered in many sizes, as well as mugs, tote bags and more. Just have fun! Hope they bring a smile to your face.
