As a native New Orleanian, I capture memories of historic and iconic treasures of the city in my photography. I digitally manipulate my images until they reflect the mood, soul, and culture of what New Orleans is all about. My process uses the highest quality archival paper, ink, and framing materials. I was raised in the heart of central city on Washington and Prieur, watching the Mardi Gras Indians congregate outside of my front door as a child. These memories formed the vision for my art. At age 13,I started working for John Deutschman Float Builders,learning from the artists as they sculpted and painted in the float den. My acrylic paintings reflect what I experienced at my float building job. My art simply depicts what I grew up with. I am basically self-taught and have operated my studio here in the city for thirty-seven years. I am extremely grateful to have the opportunity to share my work with you. Recent new work has brought me to New York and San Francisco, touching both coasts and making the circle complete.
