Esma Irvine

Meet the Artist


Esma Irvine is a Louisiana based artist. She enjoys working in many mediums, including oil paint, pastel, stained glass and other mixed media.


Esma claims she  got her  "Start" as an artist in 2013 when she and her eight year old grandson, Landon, were painting in acrylics and she told him one day SHE wanted to be an artist. He announced to her very seriously and loudly, " Mimi, U R A ARTIST!".


Since that time Esma has taken classes from artists she admires in  Louisiana, and has even taken a Pastel painting tour workshop with Louisiana Artist Alan Flattmann, to Greece.


Esma likes to  refer to her art  as a "Gumbo" of sorts, taking a little inspiration from each of her experiences, a pinch from this teacher, a dash from that class,  a stir from a fellow artist.


Esma has won many awards in Louisiana and Mississippi over the years and her beautiful art hangs in many private collections.


Her hope is that her art will inspire the people who see it in a positive way.


Esma's art can be seen in the Rotating Gallery in Franklinton as well as at the following locations:
