headshot of Marie“Now a little bit about me. I am originally from Haiti. I learned different forms of art (painting, crochet and baby bassinet making) at an early age through school and my mother. The colors of my country and my life experiences are what inspire me the most. Coming to a new country and being a mother gives me a new perspective on life and it takes shape via my art work. My form of art is abstraction because it allows me to put on canvas what the emotions of the moment are. I believe that every artist has an essence and is one of a kind. What better way to bring all of this beauty under one roof than at the Lace Mill. I am home.”
