New Orleans Design Feature: Creole Art We Love

New Orleans is my 2nd home and I love everything about the city’s design and architecture. To celebrate the culture of this city we are doing a New Orleans Design feature showcasing the  creole art of Andrew LaMar Hopkins who is a self-taught historical folk artist and Antiques Dealer. Fascinated with history, architecture, antiques and art at a early age, Hopkins creates Historically accurate detail paintings of 18th & 19th century Southern Creole interiors & exteriors. Follow his art on Facebook  athttps://www.facebook.com/andrewhopkinsfolkart
