A former New Orleans football star, played at Highland Community College in Kansas and was the country's 3rd top offensive player in 1980. He later spent two years under the legendary Coach Eddie Robinson at Grambling State University. Today, he expresses his New Orleans roots through art, drawing inspiration from the city's vibrant scenes, including the bold Mardi Gras colors and the soulful notes of gospel and jazz. His art, akin to a flavorful "Pot of Gumbo," has been shaped by these influences. A recent Hawaii trip unveiled a fresh spectrum of colors, prompting his art to evolve into a realm only nature can provide.A well-traveled artist, Triplett has explored Switzerland, Paris, London, Rome, Venice, and Florence. His art has been showcased across the country, including Maryland, Atlanta, Shreveport, Baton Rouge, and the renowned Essence Music Festival in New Orleans. He's crafted pieces for athletes, coaches, and more, even designing program covers for events like the Bayou Classic football game and capturing the spirit of the 2003 Louisiana State University's National Football Championship team.
