Hi! I'm Bonnie. I was born and raised in South Louisiana, and I've been creating art nearly my whole life.
I have been blessed to have several members of my family, including two of my grandparents , teach me a lot about art as a young child.
I am a graduate of Nicholls State University where I studied art and business. After graduating from college, I worked in the corporate world for nearly a decade, but eventually my love for art pulled me away from a desk, and I decided to open my photography studio, and get back into the art studio in 2009.
Located approximately 40 miles southwest of New Orleans, my gallery features both portrait art, and fine art on canvas.
My studio has won numerous portrait awards, including Professional Photographer of Louisiana's 2018 Photographer of the Year and have been nationally published in the photography industry. I am honored to have also been awarded 2018 Best Photographer of Terrebonne & Lafourche's Best of the Bayou.
Just a few years ago, a great friend commissioned me to paint and abstract version of The Blessed Mother for her, and at that moment I knew I wanted to paint more of her. I now have nearly 10 different versions of The Blessed Mother, including The Nativity, and with the sale of those I a give a portion of sales to many local charities.
I hope that my art brings joy to your family, whether its one of my original pieces, one of my fine art prints, or a, heirloom portrait of your children and family that you can cherish for a lifetime.
