About Gretchen

Artist Gretchen Armbruster is a south Louisiana artist working in oils, watercolor and pencil mediums. Early studies were under the direction of Robert Rosbach, David Jinks, and Alan Flattman. After majoring in art at Louisiana State University, she continued her art education at John McCrady art college and New Orleans Art Institute. Her Landscapes, nudes and still life oil paintings are found in galleries across the country. She captures the colorful area that she grew up in through depictions of carnival, jazz and local personalities and is a highly sought after portrait artist.

Notable works include the annual “Crescent City Classic” posters for 2004-2006, annual “Krewe of Bacchus” artwork for 12 years, extensive murals in the Old Absinthe house on Bourbon Street, 2010 Lombardi poster design, featured cover artist of “Inside Northside” magazine, and label designer for a California vintner. In addition, Gretchen has completed many commissions for area hospitals, businesses and restaurants. Her paintings of horses were featured in the national magazine “American Art Collector”. Her artwork has even appeared on the big screen in the movie “He Said She Said”.
