Louisiana based artist, Loveday Funck started her career in art later in life, but her love of history and whimsy have been a constant interest. Making use of a talent for the manipulation of digital images, she creates a twisted fairy tale world, finding her inspiration in the centuries old buildings and graveyards of New Orleans and the unique sites that dot the Acadiana landscape.
Her art has been recognized in international juried exhibitions as well as competitions. Her work often amuses as her sense of humor is revealed in juxtaposing the world of formal, Victorian era photography with the portraits of modern pets or other animals.
Working from antique imagery and her own photography, Loveday Funck turns her eye to the intersection of history and the fantastic. Combining the surreal experience of her heart with the images of historic Louisiana she creates a whimsical, colorful, and usually macabre world. Come and partake in its skewed sacrament.
Her work is currently on display at the art gallery at Houmas House plantation as well as the LSU Museum Store. She appears the first Saturday of every month at the Baton Rouge Arts Market and the Palmer Park Market in New Orleans on the last Saturday of every month. With her young children, Loveday Funck currently lives in the small town of Watson, Louisiana.
