Discover Petite Louisiane 

Love at first sight is real! I totally fell in love with Petite Louisiane art the moment I saw them. Laura BelIone is the gifted artist behind these tiny beauties. Laura is a landscape architect who combines her passion for painting with her love of Louisiana to create small, affordable pieces of art with Louisiana flavor.

Petite Louisiane captures some of the most well known icons of Louisiana in addition to some local faves. Shrimp, crabs, crawfish, oysters, pelicans and magnolias are quite popular. You will also find tributes to tourists faves such as New Orleans, Mardi Gras, the French Quarter and beignets. Image of cows, egrets, pink flamingos, and cotton plants also provide a glimpse into special corners of Louisiana with special meaning to locals.

Pelicans, flamingos, fleur de lis, oysters and cypress trees are just a few of the many Louisiana inspired images of Petite Louisiane

Why I love them…

Petite Louisiane is tiny and can be measured in inches!!! They are just too cute not to love.

The 4”x4” canvas and 2.3”x 3.5” on easels lend themselves brilliantly to adding affordable original art to tiny places, small rooms, bookcases, wall shelves, window sills and accent tables. 4”x12” pieces and 8”x8” prints are also available. If you need fill a larger space with this tiny art, simply frame and mount with a larger frame or even a box frame.

Petite Louisiane original paintings and drawings can also be found on ornaments, coasters, frames, and other mediums. They also make wonderful corporate gifts for out of state clients and customers as well as beautiful souvenirs (French for “remember’). In fact, I recently bought a few of these as Christmas gifts for a few special people, both local and out of State.

Why I love them even more…

Petite Louisiane art often incorporates repurposed or recycled materials including clippings from local newspapers.  I had a very difficult time deciding on the first piece to buy. I eventually chose the blue crab painted on newspaper with text featuring “NOLA“, local term that is short for New Orleans, LA.
