I am a young Caribbean woman who lives on a magical island: Haiti, the mountainous land of the Antilles. I am a self-taught artist who discovered her talent very young. I remember that the principal of my elementary school would choose me to decorate the aisle of her office with my vibrant drawings on cardboard for our annual carnival festivities. In high school, I would create and sell greeting cards to my classmates for Valentine's Day or Christmas, and I would spend my spare time sketching portraits of my favorite actors.
.......'Here, do a magic trick on my piece of paper' .....
Improvisation has always been my strength and over time drawing had become more than a hobby for me. It was a habit anchored in my subconscious and the teachers - by dint of punishing me - ended up getting used to it. Once in senior year, I chose an art skills improvement course as an extracurricular activity. It was only when I participated in a public exhibition that I realized my talent. I painted 'Imagine life', my first large format painting and I kept it with me as a vibrant reminder of my potential.
Today, I dare to follow my heart and share my work with the world. I hope to make enough sales in order to be able to share the earnings with my community. I am driven by my passion for painting, drawing and photography. Thank you in advance for visiting and liking my page! Enjoy your tour!
