Bayou Souls are the creation of Mandie Lucas, a soft sculpture artist living and working in the bayous of Louisiana. She is a native of Louisiana and is designated as a Master Craftsman by the Louisiana Crafts Guild. She has worked in textile arts for over 15 years. Each of the sculptures are one of a kind caricatures of real and imaginary people from the past and present. Any stories which accompany a sculpture are from the imagination of Mandie Lucas or an original retelling of a folktale or historical account. We are glad that you have chosed to view the website and hope you will return often to see what new souls and stories make themselves known.
