Big Queen Mardiclaw is the owner of the big easel and skinz n bonez and soul sweepers. She is currently showing at both Surrey’s locations on magazine street in New Orleans, and also at both Velvet Cactus locations… Lakeview and Baton Rouge. you can find her in her studio located in Gentilly on any given day, and she will be with her Bone Gang for Joan of Arc on twelfth nite. Also look for her at Dog Day Afternoon, and Melbas in teh 8th ward.
this was taken at krampusgras last year 2014 at siberia. in the picture is Sambone, Mistress Kali Wunderhammer, Bonez of Steele and yours truly.

I have five spots that I always show at. Surrey’s 1418 Magazine, 4807 Magazine, Velvet Cactus in Lakeview and Baton Rouge, and Melba’s. I will be branching out to the french quarter here shortly, but I thought it was a good idea to give a little sampling of art that has already sold, so that you can check it out, or maybe ask for a commission. I enjoy doing dog portraits for people, with a day of the dead twist. but here goes…
I just wanted to touch base with all of you out there to let you know that this fall has been incredibly busy for me. I just uploaded 15 images to fine art america. its incredible to think that just about ten years ago I wasn’t showing anything, to today where I have over 100 works hanging in various venues throughout the city of New Orleans.
click on the link above for the fine art america website. or google fine art america mardiclaw.
in the meantime I’m showing at the Louisiana Pizza Kitchen uptown. lots of day of the dead images there, with roosters chickens, and architecture.
from there you can find me at surrey’s 1418 magazine street / 4807 magazine street
velvet cactus lakeview and baton rouge locations and melba’s on elysian fields.
my krewe will be out in force for the October first buggy parade in the french quarter. october third for calacas y maracas where you can win a painting. then oct 18th for prince of wales social aid and pleasure club, anba dlo, krewe of boo, anne rice ball, and then the day of the dead parade.
here’s to the fall, may you find a pumpkin spice latte in your future.
