Travels in the U.S., the Bahamas, Mexico and Europe have provided her with imagery for her works as diverse and colorful as the Cajun and Creole cultures that permeate the city of her birth. Her artistic talents are multidimensional. German art critic Wolfgang Grosch wrote: “her many styles and artistic techniques show that the modern artist can pay tribute to the avant garde while speaking to the masses as well.”
