Artist StatementThe main focus of my work is to immerse myself in the creative process. I enjoy the freedom of playing and experimenting with new materials and mediums and letting the process guide me intuitively and subliminally to divergent places and directions. These places are often reflections of my early childhood memories of growing up in Haiti in the small village of Labalen where distinct visions of climbing calabash trees and interacting with various types of animals in my grandparent’s yard guide and inform my art making practices.
