Debbie Ainsworth Art

Hi, I’m Debbie Ainsworth. Thank you for visiting my website. 

The New Orleans area … its traditions, vibrancy, culture, and quirkiness … is a constant source of inspiration for both my paintings and crafts. I try to create images that touch all parts of the human heart, the dark as well as the light. If you feel something when you look at my work, then I feel I have done my job.

My style has been called New Orleans Folkart, because it features bright, vivid colors combined with a bit of iconic nostalgia. Rather than representing actual people and places, I hope my art reminds folks of their own New Orleans memories.

I’ve always dreamed of becoming a professional artist, but life kept getting in the way of making that dream a reality. In October of 2016, I got tired of waiting for the right time to make my dreams come true and started actively working to make it happen.  My first sale was in November and I’ve been blessed with several more since then. The thrill of knowing that people like my art enough to buy it is amazing. So, I can actually call myself a professional artist.

By opening my online store, I am hoping to fulfill a lifelong dream of making a living by selling my art. With the encouragement of family and friends, I’m now offering high quality fine art prints of my original paintings. They come in Limited and Open Editions, so there is something for every price point. I sincerely thank all of you for helping to make my dream a reality.

Thank you so much for stopping by. If you’re looking for something special, please let me know.
