They exemplify the joie de vivre that runs through all aspects of life here in all of its diverse cultures. This is, in large part, what helped sustain this community as it struggled, and continues to struggle, to rebuild New Orleans post Katrina. Now, 10 years later, It draws new people in large numbers to make their homes here, contributing to the rebirth of this magical place.

I feel fortunate to be able to share my love of New Orleans through my paintings. I feel like I was separated from this city at birth and that I came home when I moved here in 2009. I am in love with this colorful city that continuously entertains, amuses, and inspires me with its deep, rich history, architecture, people, amazing music, and unique neighborhoods, each with a very distinctive flavor. I also find inspiration in sentimental objects and little altars everywhere in my home, which is a sacred space to me.
My work is done in the studio and from photos I take while making my way around town, usually preferring the path less traveled. I intend to keep moving on this creative journey, always exploring different mediums and techniques.
This is my New Orleans narrative through which I hope you can experience joy, amusement, sentimentality, and some lesser known places in New Orleans from these paintings.
