I was introduced to the World of Haïtian painting through the atelier of artist Parizot Domond in 2004. After my introduction there, I enrolled in the Sant D’a Jacmel Arts Center to finish my art training. Now, I manage my own gallery on the historic Rue du commerce in Jacmel, Haiti. I have had the honor of exhibiting my work around the world, and have traveled to Europe and around the Caribbean.
In February 2023, my first experience in the United States is at The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum FIU, a Smithsonian Affiliate and one of the largest academic art museums in South Florida. The museum is home to one of the largest collections of Haitian paintings from the 1980s and 1990s in the United States. The February exhibition is titled, “Everything, Earth and Sky: An Exhibition of Haitian Art.”
In Gainesville, I am confident that all of the artists will present themselves in a way that brings great pride to their home community of Jacmel.
