ew Orleans has long been a creative muse and
inspiration for artists of all kinds. No other
American city has such a layered and diverse
cultural history, and brims with creativity quite like she
does. The Big Easy excels in and celebrates all things
imaginative–inventive food, beautiful architecture, and
art and music on every corner. Some say it's our European,
Creole and African roots, some say it's the heat and
humidity, but everyone points to the remarkable creative
freedom pulsing through our neighborhoods. Our talent is
literally home-grown and richly supported by natives and
visitors alike. There must be something in the water.

Logan Ledford, a minimal colorist, has been painting since she was
five. In her studio in the Irish Channel, her focus is on illustration,
graphic design and, of course, painting. Classically trained, Logan
has a thing for happy abstraction, color blocking and thick texture.
Her work on birch wood panels, canvas, oyster shells and shiny boxes is
graphic, modern and bursting with color. Logan's 'color spots' series is a
study in Big Easy exuberance.

designing and making art here in
he colors of New Orleans are amazing–houses, fashion,
costumes, parties, it's never ending. This city is vibrant,
fun, intense, but laid back, and I think my work reflects
this to a T. I see my color spots as personalities or stories, each
is a different vibrant person I have met in New Orleans or a
hilariously unique story I've heard at a cocktail party.
