I am self-taught and consider myself a contemporary artist who works exclusively with acrylics. I studied art history. Nothing prepared me to become a painter, I started to really paint in 2019 after some painful events. Over time, in my explorations, experience, and training, the colors and shapes have taken their place. This evolution reflects my desire to express myself without having to use words.
As a Haitian, my style is very influenced by my culture and this is developed in a natural way, I paint for the joy of remembering to tell my stories

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

The most important thing for me is inspiration and creation. I have a real joy in filling a blank canvas with my feelings or passing a message. I work by instinct, I improvise movement, that's why I rarely make sketches.
I am often inspired by Philome Obin, Frida Kahlo, and Jackson Pollock. My style is a mixture of naive expressionism and calculated casting, guided by my studies in art history where I discovered these artists who have marked me. I am perpetually in search of inspiration, in everyday life, current events, and even in my loved ones, in short, my work represents my mood and my stories.
You will notice changes in the lines, the movements of the characters, and the nuances of the colors, over time, I have spent a lot of time studying the different types of colors to match, the reactions between them, such as transparency and opacity. I am aware that I do not respect the rules of art, I paint from the heart and emotions, sometimes my works may have similarities but each one tells its own story.

It's not me and my mother, it's the representation of my mother and me in a dream. This woman has been an example throughout my life, in my subcontien she has always been present. In many ways, I am very similar to her and at the same time so different. In this painting two women discussing for the last time.

In a world where man prefers to use the argument of extraterrestrials to explain the grandiose things that my ancestors created, saddens me and torments me. In this painting I wanted to pay homage to the goddess Hathor, the goddess of beauty, joy, love and above all motherhood. At the top of the painting where you can see the image of Africa touring the sea which can also look like the sky. The link I wanted to make and the message between Hathor and Africa is these two are the mother of humanity.

I have always loved the work of Jackson Pollock. The brushstrokes and vibrant energy that I feel when I look at his works and that is what inspires me.

An independent woman heading towards her destiny after breaking down barriers. In a world where everything is appearance, sometimes you have to go against the current.
