In my paintings, I try to capture the culture of South Louisiana through the use of figures and color. I was born and raised in Morgan City and my work reflects the cajun culture that I grew up in. In my landscape paintings, I use a combination of brush and palette knife work to help bring the canvas to life. I grew up fishing in the Louisiana marsh and swamplands and these paintings are of areas that I have frequented.
I graduated from L.S.U. with degrees in Painting and Graphic Design. All of my work is oil on board or canvas. I have been living and working in the Baton Area for the past 25 years. Additional work can be viewed at CassidyBreauxArt.com.
