About me

Industry Arts
Location New Orleans, LA
Introduction I was born on a military base and raised in Fort Walton Beach, FL. I attended Trinity University in San Antonio, TX, majoring in Art History and English, followed by European Art and Architecture in Vienna, Austria, and graduate school at Tulane University in New Orleans. I worked for the Rodrigue Gallery in New Orleans and later Carmel, CA, beginning in 1991, and married George Rodrigue in 1997. We lived in Lafayette, LA before moving in 2001 to New Orleans and Carmel. I've written guest columns for publications including Gambit, Country Roads Magazine, and Louisiana Cultural Vistas; I've worked on Rodrigue exhibitions and publishing projects as needed and lectured frequently on his art and Louisiana history. As of 2017 I remain involved in Rodrigue Gallery operations, the George Rodrigue Foundation of the Arts, and, primarily, in preserving and enhancing Rodrigue's artistic legacy. My first solo book, "The Other Side of the Painting" (UL Press), was published October 2013.
