Darlene was born and raised in New Orleans and is now living in Slidell. She attended art classes and began painting in the 70's. She has always been creative with a passion and talent for art. She is dedicating much of her time now toward her art career. She has won multiple local awards for both her marsh scene landscapes and abstracts. Most of her paintings are done in oil on canvas, acrylic on canvas, and mixed media works. Darlene sees the world with an artistic eye, and tries to translate that into art that pleases the senses and moves the viewer.
Darlene participates in local Art Shows and Markets and is enjoying the experience of creating art and interacting with the art community and patrons.
She recently opened her own Art Gallery at 220 Erlanger in Olde Towne Slidell. Please visit her on facebook at:
