Artist Statement

"The effects of Hurricane Katrina were felt all along the Gulf Coast. Many residents fled their homes unsure of when or if they would ever return. As a Katrina refugee I knew that feeling of fear, confusion, and uncertainty. I was a stranger for a while along with many others who were displaced from their homes in New Orleans, La. 2005." - Laura Jean Montgomery
