Artist + Brandy Dufrene

Empowerment. Resilience. Beauty.

I believe that art can heal, it can inspire, and it can provide advocacy for those who deserve a voice; the real life superheroes whose song is unsung. I believe that art can make a difference!  Inspired by nature and humanity, I explore strength, emotion and movement through various mediums. 

Born in Louisiana’s sleepy bayou country, I developed a deep love and respect for the natural environment and an appreciation for simple yet magical moments it creates. I realized that the relationship between human beings and the world that provides for them is sometimes delicate, sometimes chaotic, and sometimes beautiful. Growing up 'on the bayou' taught me how permeable the lines between those things could be. New Orleans has her own complicated relationship with nature, and since relocating here I've enjoyed exploring that intriguing dance along her streets.

My interest in the grace and beauty of age also began early on. As a young girl, I fell head over heels for New Orleans and what I thought of as the living patina of it all, her charm, her imperfections, and her grit that make every day interesting and inspiring. There is a haunting beauty in the gnarls of the live oak, in the resurrection fern peeping out of brickwork, and in the abandoned graffiti-laden building basking in the twilight. The influences of growing up in this area, along with admiration for the resilience of the human spirit is undeniably woven throughout my work.
