Lagniappe is a Creole word for ‘a little something extra,’ and to me is represents the grace of life. It’s a philosophy I turn to, and it’s abundant in my life and work.
I’m a native New Orleans artist currently specializing in costume design and garment making. I also do acrylic and watercolor paints, knitting, serious glue gun crafting, and home decor projects.
My work is informed by the celebration and easy life of Mardi Gras, the balance between utility and inspiration while traveling, the self-reliance and self-exploration of Burning Man, and the flexibility to follow unexpected opportunities.
