Hayley Roussel

Artist + Hayley Roussel

I consider myself a contemporary artist. I am currently residing and creating in the vibrant city of New Orleans, Louisiana.  I was born in 1994 and raised in St. Charles Parish, where I was fortunate to be part of the Talented Art program from Elementary school until my graduation from Destrehan High School in 2012. Following my passion, I pursued a BFA degree at LSU in Baton Rouge, specializing in studio art with a focus on painting and drawing and graduating in 2017. My art teachers and Professors have all proved to be strong influences on me. 

Supporting the arts, particularly public art and street art, holds a special place in my heart, and I have collaborated with numerous organizations, including New Orleans's Downtown Development District. In 2021, I joined forces with them to create two murals on Royal Street as part of their vacant storefront program. This year, I'm excited to be part of NOLA Artist Incubator's 2023 Art in the Park cohort and collaborating with the Paul Mailliard business and arts initiative in my home parish, as well as selling art in the first ever 'Artist Village' at Gretna Fest, aiming to infuse more artistic energy into all of the communities I feel connected to.

Live Painting events have also been a thrilling part of my artistic journey in and around New Orleans, with one notable highlight being the international 'Art Battle.' I proudly identify as an 'emerging artist,' from being a practiced painter and muralist to a self-published poet. I also run an online art shop and take on commissioned painting projects. My current focus is on crafting whimsical acrylic paintings in my cozy Bayou St. John home studio, and you can also find my work available here, through Where y'Art Works and at Revival Art House in Ponchatoula, among a few other pop-up markets and businesses.

My most recent and ever-evolving series is a celebration of the enchanting streetscapes, architecture, gardens, and countless distinctive elements that define New Orleans, Louisiana, and the South as a whole. This series delves into the heart of everything, from iconic shotgun houses and serene cemeteries to the ornate porches, majestic mausoleums, and sacred religious statues that grace our city. I also draw inspiration from other unique NOLA features, including Mardi Gras floats, the vibrant hues of houses, and the native flora that adds a touch of magic to our surroundings. In this series, I play with color, saturating it to new heights, especially embracing my favorite blues and greens. I also love to abstract and merge different New Orleans and Louisiana locations, all in a quest to capture the true essence and soul of the extraordinary place(s) we proudly call home.
