As long as I've been creating art professionally, people have associated my paintings and artdolls with Mardi Gras. I grew up in the Deep South, so I have been to Mardi Gras events all my life. Mobile, Alabama has a wonderful Mardi Gras season and so does the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Of course, New Orleans Mardi Gras is the most famous and the one I've been to the most so far. I recommend all of them! I love the costumes, the fun, and the revelry. Everywhere you look people are smiling and having a great time! So it's true, my work is definitely influenced by Mardi Gras-one of my favorite times of the year!
