Louise Guidry

Artist + Louise Guidry

I was born in Ville Platt, Louisiana, a very small southern town. I didn't have any formal art training as a child, but my mother was a seamstress, and I was intrigued by the scraps of fabric and threads that she would discard and I would play with them. This was my first attempt at creativity. It wasn't until we moved to St. Martinville in high school that I started studying art independently on my own until I was thirty, when I began to paint in earnest. I married, had children and was very occupied with family life and an elementary school teaching career, but once my kids were grown I went to UL at age 54 and got my fine arts degree at 58. I have been making art ever since and now my paintings are accepted around the world. I am 86 years old, and painting keeps me young. I would like to die with my brush in my hand!
