Bob started teaching in 1974 and has lived and worked in New Orleans for more than 30 years.
“I visited New Orleans twice in the late seventies. I did not feel at first that I could bear to leave my portrait business in Atlanta. Things were going very well for me. But the pressures of parenthood were a lot for a single parent, and I came once more to the Big Easy.”
