“We’re just gonna do something fun that people can take photos with, interact with, kids can play on. So when we walked up the kids were already having fun on it, so getting a fresh coat of paint and then they’ll get back on to play,” Gumbo said.

According to her website, Hannah Gumbo is an artist/illustrator working from her home studio in the Cajun prairies of rural Louisiana.
