She grew up with books and drawing pads and drew pictures of the places she knew. One day she left that bayou to embark on great adventures and learn about the world. When she returned it was with a family, her own children, and a dream to tell the stories of her bayou. Alexis Braud is a Cajun native, rambler, and eccentric. With her books and art she celebrates the things that deeply matter to our lives here in Louisiana. A graduate of Nicholls State University, she lives with her books, drawings, dreams and family along Bayou Lafourche, the same bayou on which she grew up. Find Alexis online at www.fablepainter.com.
