"I am a painter and professional musician, living and working in New Orleans: the perfect occupations for any New Orleanian, besides making and eating great food. I'm interested in capturing the beauty of objects, whether they are glass balls or live oak trees - crayons or turtles sunning in our beautiful Audubon Park. In many ways, New Orleans is the perfect city for the melding of my two artistic worlds. It's a city that is a daily celebration of the senses and the perfect canvas for a creative artist. My paintings are my love letters to New Orleans - an enchanting, haunting place, that inspires me every day."
