I began my career as an artist by painting Mardi Gras floats in New Orleans. As a float painter I developed an appreciation of light, texture and bold, contrasting colors. Painting floats provided me the opportunity to paint on a grand scale, which inspired me to incorporate many of those techniques onto canvas.
After Hurricane Katrina, I sold my artwork at local festivals, art markets and on the fence at Jackson Square
I am currently working on new paintings at my studio in the French Quarter.
