Meet Journey Allen
Local artist Journey Allen is native to the land of New Orleans which is the inspiration for her vibrant works that intertwine her signature abstract pattern with images that capture the city's celebratory culture.
With a gallery-studio space operating after her namesake in the heart of the Historic 7th Ward Neighborhood where she grew up, Artist Journey Allen embraces a life of community and creativity that defies the odds of a college professor who once told her that she was "unteachable" and "could never learn to paint well enough to become a professional artist."
With these words at the foundation of her path, Journey sources light from this narrative and uses it as a means of empowerment through her work with the youth that she encounters as an arts educator throughout her creative practice.

"This is a great place for a girls' night, which is what we had. Journey was very patient and helpful. She was a great instructor who encouraged creativity and putting our own twist on our work. She also offers children classes. I definitely will look to booking another painting session, in the future."
