About the Artist


My name is Carroll L. Gautreaux. I am a lifelong resident of Opelousas, Louisiana.  I was a carpenter for 44 years, but have been an artist all my life. I began working with metal as a medium seven years ago because I had never seen anything like it and wanted a way to preserve the Cajun lifestyle and culture in my art. I want people to feel something, whether it takes them back to a simpler time or brings back a memory from long ago.
