These characters are also based on Vivian Maier photographs. The resolve of the young girl reminds of many strong women in my life and influencing the world around us. The defunct sign shop in the background is juxtaposed with these characters as they represent the future and a changing of the guard.
I was born and raised in New Orleans, and at a young age I took interest in local art and culture. Leaving behind engineering scholarships at 19 to fully pursue my art interests, I soon booked my first exhibit in New Orleans showing colored-pencil sketches based on studies of Degas' dancers.
After these Degas' studies and many others of great artists, I began pursuing a new, self-taught method that formed into the sculptural-painting and collage techniques I use today. My works using these techniques have been shown in New York, New Orleans, and Oklahoma City galleries.UPTOWN
