Myrlene "MIMI" DESIR
January 15th - February 26th
Born in Haiti, with an Haitian mother and a Canadian father, my childhood was exposed to a wide diversity in contradiction to the other children and that created in me a wealth of information. I migrated in the United States in 1985 and started a regular life by integrating myself in going to school to learn English and then further my education.
I am a resident of Attleboro and occupy my time with art and teaching art which is creating an interesting beehive of activities and outcomes, including my latest venture Art From Heart. I also collaborate with several organizations and groups that are related to art, including the group HAAM and with the artists at The Brockton Arts Center. I enjoy doing art and crafts with the elderly which reminds me of the importance of each age group.
I have done many solo and group exhibits in the Boston area and my work is sold to businesses and individuals in the U.S., Canada and of course, Haiti. I have been annotated in two books: "The Migrating Colors" and "Presence Feminine Dans L'Art Haitien" (French version only).
In January 2018 I also received an Official Citation from the State Senate of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for my commitment to supporting Haitian art and Haitian artists. Visual Art is therapy for my mind and also way to connect with others. What words cannot express I found it in the colors.
