About the Studio
Winsum Centennial Cottage is Martin's name for the century-old home that has become his studio. Built in 1897, the cottage has wide, shaded porches providing the perfect environment for relaxation, inspiration and contemplation. Hardwood floors in the studio itself are from the original "Blue Moon" nightclub, the famed central Louisiana landmark that hosted the likes of Count Basie, Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, along with countless others who performed to packed crowds from all over the surrounding area. Winsum is in the town of Bunkie, the geographic middle of the state, where a church bell announces the noon hour and the passing of periodic freight trains harken back to an earlier time. Bunkie is located in Avoyelles Parish, the northernmost of the Acadiana Parishes.
Louisiana Ink Art at Winsum Centennial Cottage is easy to find with two turns off I-49 or only two blocks off Hwy 71. Make an appointment and see Martin's work at Winsum on your next trip.
