The current theme of my work is consumerism, its effect on our culture, and its often negative impacts on the natural world. As a society, we are now more disconnected from our past culture, nature, and spirituality than ever before. Growing up in Haiti, I have seen first hand how nature has been abused and disrespected. My work is a blend of my memories, my culture, and the modern-day bombardment of materialistic pleasures seen on social media. My canvases depict the battlefield in my mind, where the consumer culture of western society engages in a losing battle with the things I hold most dear.I draw strength from being in green spaces because nature herself is what brings me happiness. My most precious childhood memories of a simpler time in Haiti are in the garden. I leave the viewer to their interpretations, where they can choose to celebrate the materialistic items intertwined in the artwork or focus on the beauty of the natural world.
