About the artist: 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 on to 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.
