As a young age, my family traveled a lot. We lived in Haïti, Barbados, and across Canada. I was exposed to different cultures, languages, as well as different education systems. So I developed an interest in the arts as a form of communicative expressive language. I continued my studies in Communication Arts at Champlain College and then went to Art Design at Concordia University. and further my studies including Art Therapy.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

Following my education, I worked in different artistic fields such as: l’Institute de Design de Montreal (established in the old port 1994), to 3D Sign building with Carrot signs Inc., and Floor design at Trakett Inc. in Franham.

I am now giving creative art workshops in LaPrairie and Sainte-Catherine, where I include fun, creative approach to art. Through my workshops I propose different techniques and Medias that can give you the freedom to express yourself or get you out of our comfort zone. I usually mix the old and new and the recycled material and techniques together. (Example of materials are;
ceramic building , painting, paper (quilling paper, papier maché, origami, cricut design) make your own design stencil recycle glass, string art, Chakra art, Create your own robot, Friction art….and much more.
My workshops can be adapted to multiple level of difficulties and physical abilities. I am calm, patient and easy to approach, and finally very organized.

Hope to see you soon!
