It was by accident, actually. I was at La Maison d’Haïti installing work for an exhibition at their new gallery and I met Yves, the director of AARTEN. He told me about the organization and support you provide to artists, and I became a member the same day.
Ten years from now I would like to have worked on more collaborations with other artists, participated in several international artist residencies, and shown my work in more countries.
Yes, these past two years have been exceptionally good. I feel very fortunate for the opportunities I’ve had to create and exhibit new work. I’m now looking forward to a busy summer with new projects and several exhibitions.
Mostly other artists. Not only visual artists but artists in other creative fields as well. I am especially inspired by poets and writers.
