Andrew Hopkins, Folk Artist and Friend

Just as Bienville maintained a home on the shores of Mobile Bay while establishing the city of New Orleans, Andrew Hopkins has maintained his roots in Mobile's Down the Bay neighborhood while establishing a successful art career in New Orleans. Andrew's art has grown from his passion for the art, architecture, and landscape of the Gulf South. His knowledge of historic elements and details combine with vibrant tropical colors to create distinctive and exceptional works of art. 

It was because of our common passion for antiques that we met years ago through our friend and mentor Patrick Norwood. Pat owned an antique store on Dauphin Street and though he passed away in 2008, much of him lives on in the lives of us who knew him. 

Though Andrew spends much of his time at his home in Tremé, he still visits often and when he does we always have a great time!
