The Associated Professional Educators of Louisiana (APEL) has already received 427 individual requests from teachers whose school supplies were flooded. This number will only grow.
A few days ago, I was inspired to paint "Louisiana: People Stronger Than Water."
Original paintings, fine art prints (archival pigment print on hot-press 100% rag paper with acid free foam core backing)
and open edition prints are available (see below). Original paintings will be oil on canvas or oil on wood. Please specify upon order you preference in the notes.
100% of proceeds from sales of these prints, and the painting itself, will be donated to APEL's efforts to help teachers replenish supplies.
Custom framing available.
DONATE ARTWORK TO AN AFFECTED CLASSROOM:
Want to donate a print or a painting to a flooded classroom? It's always nice to make those classrooms beautiful and full of artwork! But these are more than just artwork, they will act as a reminder of the strength and will of the people of Louisiana.
Each piece of artwork that is donated will be given to a Louisiana teacher who receives money for school supplies through this campaign.
In the check-out - please choose "Will pick up locally" as your shipping preference, and in the notes section write "Donated to a classroom".

I'm a self-taught folk artist. My first painting was made on a whim during a winter break from college - and over the years I have found pleasure and relaxation through painting.
Upon moving to New Orleans I found my artistic soul through art-cars. A chance encounter in 2007 with Marigny artist, Sue Ireland, led me to create my first art-car, turning my little Toyota into "the redhead car". Once every inch of that little car was covered, I moved towards painting on found objects such as old political signs, tables, and pieces of metal. In the years since, I have painted large-scale murals, trucks, and works on wood and canvas.
My favorite thing to do now is paint on canvas and then hand-sew beads and sequins unto the painting to create an interesting texture and depth to my folk-art.
I find inspiration in life in New Orleans, my travels, and my "real job" as a middle school history teacher.
