Terrance Osborne, 37, grew up in New Orleans. Inspired by the diverse and colorful surroundings, Osborne developed an interest in art, working with any materials he could get his hands on. Encouraged by the artist Richard Thomas, he learned to paint with passion and expression.
Osborne earned a degree in art from Xavier University and taught at Alice M. Harte Elementary School in Algiers. After Hurricane Katrina, he dedicated his time completely to his art. His work has become nationally recognized.
In 2006, Osborne was honored by New Orleans Magazine as one of “Fifty People to Watch.” In 2007 and 2010 he produced the official Congo Square posters for the Jazz and Heritage Festival. His “Porch Song: A Portrait of Trombone Shorty” is the official poster for the 2012 Jazz and Heritage Festival.
