NOLA Girl

 These bright, colorful graphic representations are based on locally owned and operated business in the megtropolis of New Orleans. (including Houma, Thibodeaux, Metarie, Gretna and other cities) Since 2007 I have been producing a series called NOLA Girls. Each female figure I paint is a strong woman who represents a person, place or thing that I love. Mostly the NOLA Girl  represents businesses that I either support or admire. Each painting usually represents the establishment with the Girl's costume, her background and a "prop" from the particular place in her hands. These paintings serve as a layout or sometimes final illustration.

From the painting, I can create Postcards, Posters & T-Shirt art. I "clean them up" digitally in PhotoShop, add type and a few more sparkles for the printing process. My long range plan is to self-publish a coffee table book of over 100 NOLA Girls. But, until that book is published, I am producing postcards POSTCARDS as a means to promote myself and the future book.

 Presently you see most of these painting hanging in 2 of my favorite locations in New Orleans:

Angeli on Decatur • 1141 Decatur St. • New Orleans, LA 70116 • 504-566-0077

and at:  the Country Club. • 634 Louisa St • New Orleans, LA 70117 • (504) 945-0742
