Barbie L'Hoste is a native of New Orleans who began her career at the New Orleans Center for Creative Arts. After completing her foundation year at the Maryland Institute College of Art she returned to the great city of New Orleans where she studied at Loyola and finished with a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of New Orleans. She earned her masters degree in studio fine arts from Tulane University and continues to work with collage/ mixed media on paper and canvas.

Barbie’s proclivity in painting is to borrow surrounding images or materials and reinterpret their original intentions through appropriation. She draws inspiration from cultural norms, nostalgia, and social media. Seeking to crate humor and satirical narratives, she also responds strongly to society’s extreme materialism and subsequent desensitization of the human condition.
