The LA seasons project was designed to encourage citizens to get outside & explore more of "The Pelican State"! These seasonally themed posters feature a checklist of local adventures, festivals throughout Louisiana, & activities to keep you busy adventuring all year round.
This “Pop Up Portrait” booth was created for the opening of my Pinky Promise art show at Gallery R. I partnered with photographer Brittany Boudreaux & makeup company Laqa & Co. / Winky Lux to complete this perfectly pink pop up experience.
Each portrait participant received a professionally edited photo, instant Polaroid, & goody bag with their purchase.

Tee designs for Lakeview Park & Beach
I have lived in St. Landry Parish for over three years now, and in that time I have fallen in love with its small, sometimes overlooked historic towns. Through the assistance of the ArtSpark stipend, I was able to create a large-scale public mural on an unsightly brick wall in the historic downtown of Eunice, Louisiana.
As part of the grant, I also visited local schools and introduced my project to the children, inviting their feedback & ideas for the design. Many of the suggestions centered around a list of "DO NOTS" that included crawfish, gators, & symbols of the past. Instead of outright avoiding this cliché imagery that has come to symbolize "Cajuns", I decided to abstract it in a way that would provide a fresh perspective into this vibrant culture.
Having the community involved in the progression, installation, & celebration of this piece of public art allowed for a variety of citizens to engage deeply with this project.

The Betty & Veronica brand chose this creamy, dreamy design for their summer tee contest!
“The strong and stylish women that are Betty and Veronica have inspired generations of adoring fans who have kept the tradition of classic American attitude and style close to their hearts. That theme is continued today in the CW show Riverdale, which showcases Betty and Veronica's close yet chaotic friendship during a tumultuous period of small-town drama. Regardless of the crises, they constantly defend and encourage one another, and are examples of resilience in the face of adversity.
Every day we work to bring the spirit of these two gals to life, hoping to inspire girls all over the world to be strong, confident, and supportive of one another - which is what great friendships are all about!”
These day camp sessions are designed to inspire & challenge young students of all backgrounds (from curious beginners to confident artists). By providing a variety of new tools/supplies in each exercise & encouraging imagination, I hope to grow the creative spirit in each of my students!

In 2014, my husband & I began sharing a studio space together. As he began expressing his thoughts through music, I was in the other room experimenting with pastels, charcoal, & acrylics. Working alongside one another in this space, a collaboration began taking shape. These six pieces are a representation of the songs created. They are a testament to the journey, a battle scar, an embracing of heartache, an acceptance of circumstance, a sliver of gold, a desire for depth, a resolve to hold firm, an outer reality of inner vision.

Painted for the 2019 Festival International de Louisiane
The Y-LAFAYETTE sign was crowd-funded & stands as an interactive public art installation. The sculpture’s letters are painted throughout the year to promote community events & awareness.
Partnering with Mrs. Darbonne’s 2nd grade class at the Academy of Sacred Heart in Grand Coteau, I led the students through a hands-on project to create a school-themed art print. By photographing each girls’s paper flower created within the workshop, I was able to design a floral motif within the print that represented each child in a unique way.
