BIOGRAPHY
LOGAN LEDFORD BIOGRAPHY

New Orleans-based artist Logan Ledford is known for her minimalist approach and unapologetic use of color when it comes to her compositions. Her work embodies a sense of chaos of constant changing tides that pull into a whirlwind of ambitious ideation. In contrast, the need to organize and control overwhelms these ever changing tides. Ultimately, Ledford’s work is a reflection of the artist, herself. Her work reveals these contrasting emotions in their sporadic color and organic form with grid-like or centered circle compositions. 

Ledford was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and received her Bachelor of Interior Design from Louisiana State University in 2009. In 2015, she studied under Anne Cicero at the New Orleans Academy of Fine Arts. Ledford also has a background in graphic design working at an advertising agency for 5 years. Alongside pursuing a career as an artist, she also works in the film industry as a graphic designer. Ledford’s work has been exhibited at the New Orleans Museum of Art, Ogden Museum of Art and galleries across the United States. Her work has been reviewed by Garden and Gun, LSU Art and Design College Press, The Washington Post and the Boston Globe. Ledford lives and works in New Orleans, Louisiana.
