Lucille Anderson

Artist + Lucille Anderson

I grew up in the Pacific Northwest. My influences and passions in life were formed from my upbringing; the love for art and supporting people with different abilities. My Father was a longshoreman and my Mother works with people with developmental disabilities and is also an artist (but she doesn't think so). My Dad has been gone for about 13 years now, but he raised us kids on Jazz music. I started getting into music in the 9th grade when I got my first record player for Christmas. Since then I have loved old music; especially, blues, soul and old country. My Father passed away by surprise at age 20; after that, I picked up a paintbrush and starting painting. I learned to turn my feelings of sadness into something positive like tangible, colorful paintings. Kinda like how Blues music started from pain.

I studied Art Therapy in college and moved to Minnesota, where my roots are. There, I worked with adults with intellectual disabilities and severe mental illnesses. We worked together on an Organic farm, and I also taught art to my clients every day.  I was already planning on moving to New Orleans and soon  packed up my 88' Volvo and headed down south in August of 2016. I spent a month in Mississippi before I moved to New Orleans. I was in love; I finally got to be where I dreamed of being; the place which inspired my artwork. For years, even before I moved down South, my style has been very folky with lots of colors, which has always encompassed that New Orleans spirit.

We have been in New Orleans for going on 5 years now and adopted a little dog, named Gris-Gris. I currently work as a Special Education Teacher and in my spare time, I paint. Painting puts my personality on canvas as well as pay homage to the Gods of the Delta Blues.
