Title: "Mardi Gras Louis Armstrong"
Medium: Mixed media on Birch wood
Completed in 2017
The father of jazz. The grandson of a slave. The spirit of hope for so many. From the slums of New Orleans to becoming the most recognizable name in music- Satchmo changed his world before he eventually changed ours. Despite his adversity, he never gave up. Louis Armstrong is the definition of New Orleans culture. I look to his legacy for guidance, as I create my own.
