I studied art in south Louisiana under the tutelage of two gifted teachers. Having entered and won ribbons both locally as well as nationally has brought my work to the international stage. It has hung in Museum exhibitions and hangs in Korea, Turkey and England.
I am a child of the Atchafalaya Basin, whose muddy rivers and marshes run through the history of my family with the French blood in my veins. Having been raised as a fur trapper’s son, in the United States largest swamp wilderness, I could always see the beauty in our coastal waters. The ever-changing lights, sounds and smells still resonate in my memory as if to bring me solace.
While my inspiration was born in Louisiana it has grown to include all of nature. The painting of the coastal marshes and wetlands I hope will bring attention to the need to respect and restore our coastal wetlands. For every 2.7 miles of marsh a tidal surge is diminished by ONE foot.
