Now the only help given to the Haiti people is just the assistance. The further step is to give people a means to look at future, changing by work.
"Haiti is the island of mysticism and painting (Malraux) and it is through painting, that this great country tells its story, its stories. And it is these stories that these clothes narrate and it is this gift that I disseminate and imprint on my fabrics. Making the history of Haiti and the art naif a wearable art, which despite its "naif" denomination has a profound theoretical corpus. It is a cheerful art even when it expresses a drama, that with simple strokes and generous colors, does not allow mystifying intermediaries".
