Nearly Complete


 This piece is nearly finished. 
The subject is the disappearing Louisiana coast.
  • The Terrebonne Basin has experienced the greatest decrease in wetland area in the State of Louisiana with approximately 502 square miles (1,302 km2) or 321,730 acres of net loss since 1932.
  • The Barataria Basin has experienced the second greatest land loss of the nine coastal Louisiana basins, with a net loss of approximately 432 square miles (1,121 km2) or 277,000 acres of wetlands since 1932. 
  • For more information on coastal erosion go to: https://btnep.org/
This is a major issue in south Louisiana, my home.

Made With Love

Made With Love. Fabric yo-yos, handcarved rolling pin. 2019
I inherited my Aunt Stella Lear-Lasangue's rolling pin. The pin is hand carved from one, solid piece of wood. I remember going to Aunt Stella's and Uncle Clarence's home in Donaldsonville, Louisiana. They lived right on the Mississippi River. We wore our Sunday-best to visit with them. We would go to Sunday mass, then have lunch. After lunch we would climb the river's levee to see the Mississippi. 
Good food, good times.

This tiny piece was created for entry into the 5x5x5 Exhibition at River Oaks Art Square in Alexandria, LA.

It makes me smile.

In Memory of a Friend

Connie's Gown. 2018. Night gown, fabric yo-yos, on canvas panel. 10.5"x10.5"x2.5".

My dear friend, Connie, gave me this night gown over 25 years ago. 
I have worn it out. 
I will never receive another earthly gift from her, and so I honor her by creating a work of art with this lovely little gown she gave me. 
I wish you had chosen to remain with us - we miss you dearly.
