Informed by my career as an architect and my heritage as a Haitian-Cuban woman, my interdisciplinary practice employs painting as tools for storytelling. Raised in Miami, FL, I received my Bachelors of Architecture from the University of Miami (2020) and a Masters of Architecture from Yale University (2022). In 2022, I was appointed Strauch Fellow at Cornell’s College of Architecture, and I’ve taught several classes at Yale’s School of Architecture, City College of New York, Morgan State University, Dark Matter University and at University of Miami as a teaching assistant. Within my architectural practice, I employ painting, tapestry, installation, performance and writing, using black culture and beauty as a tool to address socio-political difference in the built environment. My ongoing body of work explores constructions of the feminine within American media- while using Afro-Caribbean culture as a platform for this discourse. I was the June 2023 Artist in Residence in the Everglades (AIRIE) fellow and my position at Cornell was renewed for a second year at Cornell. I split my time between Miami and New York.
