Often on my nature walks I find animal bones and occasionally I find intact skulls- this piece features three of the skulls I've found, two fox and one raccoon! The snake is a speckled king, one of my favorite of the local species. They are beautiful, non-deadly, and actually feed on venomous snakes.
As a native of Southwest Louisiana, a love of art is in my blood. The area I grew up in is saturated with art of all kinds and I'm so fortunate to count myself among such skilled artists. I was born and raised in Lake Charles but have migrated north to the little town of DeQuincy, a more rural area that is home to all the amazing wildlife and flora I could ever want. I attended McNeese State University where I earned a Bachelor's degree in Art and studied drawing and printmaking primarily- but in the decade since I've shifted my focus to watercolor and found my true calling as a painter. I've fixated on many different subjects over recent years; pop culture and portraiture were my interest for a long time. Now, I'm inspired primarily by my surroundings and paint local flora and fauna, learning as I go. You can often find me tromping around the woods and finding mushrooms and critters to sketch and photograph for reference.LAKE CHARLES
