About the Artist
Born on a cotton farm in Clarksdale, Mississippi, Louis Carr was captivated at young age by the natural beauty that surrounded him. This inspired him to pursue his passion for painting, and he began commissioning his own artwork at the age of 11.
In high school, Louis won Best of Show for his portraits at the Mid-South Art championships. This encouraged him to continue pursuing art at the University of Mississippi, where he was one of only two students to be awarded the highly distinguished art scholarship during his last two years.
Louis currently resides in Oxford, Mississippi, where he has established himself as a well-respected portrait artist throughout the Southeast and Midwest regions.
