Gumbo's Virtue

A fragrant cherished pleasure, Louisiana's Gumbo is a traditional Creole dish made with a dark smoky roux. Its variety of ingredients is diverse as the culture that created it.

 

Like a gumbo, the images in this portfolio present themselves with a variety of ingredients that when mixed becomes a cultural stew of infused visual language.

 

Filling and rich, "Gumbo's Virtue" sustains as well as reveals the spice of poetry. This fusion feeds the memory that grows on the backyard vine of my youth. The aroma of my Louisiana always contains food and with it, carries the imagery of my past.
