I was born in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti in the Caribbean grew up there until the age of 7 when my family migrated to the United States. Growing up in Haiti I began to draw at the age of 4 and at 6 started to sing. My siblings were all skilled at drawing detailed pencil artwork as well as my mother Enide Louis. My mother went to school for sewing; she tailored designing clothes for almost everyone that lived in our neighborhood when I was younger. Some of the very clothes I wore she designed and sewed for me to go to school as well as church. I guess my creativity and passion for art comes from her, but my father Enock Louis worked at the international airport in Haiti fueling jets and airplanes. He would come home smelling like gasoline and labor. His hard work and strong-will would be something I gained from not only observing him work day in and day out, but I believe flows through my very blood. Overall my family was my biggest and primary influence to do anything in life while being successful at it to some degree.
The very first achievement I can remember achieving for my work that is significant would have to be gaining the honor to represent my high school Palm Beach Lakes Community High School in West Palm Beach, Florida as the creative arts person for my graduating class that year in a local scholarship event called the Pathfinders Awards in 2008. I was born on November 18th, 1990 and I guess growing up in the 90′s really was good for me in comparison to some others. Sometimes I wish I was born at an earlier time, but I have been glad to be born at the time I was.
Today I am 22 years of age ; I did not start photography until the summer of 2012 so it’s been less than a year since I’ve been practicing with that medium. I believe if any of my photographs look decent or captivating it is because of my eye and respect for art not because of the tool that I use. So far everything that I shoot I capture with what is considered an entry level digital camera at Canon Rebel T3i. Prior to actually picking up this camera to shoot I worked as a freelance graphic designer since 2008; during that time I edited many photographs doing photo-retouching and manipulations, this trained my eyes. I have taken one photography course during the past few months and look to take another. The very first course and only one that I took so far was at a the Metropolitan Community College in Omaha, Nebraska which is currently where I reside. The course was an introduction to digital photography, this course helped me understand the camera settings and components that make up the camera along with the value of light when it comes to taking a photograph. Light is the most essential part of photography then the rest compliment the composition of a capture.
Aside from music art and design both have much a place in my heart. I am fascinated by others works and sometimes in love with my own creations. I enjoy painting as much as I enjoy designing or drawing; the only most important key and point for me is I have to be doing it as a personal project to enjoy the process the most and not necessarily for money. Even though working for others can be beneficial, I am more satisfied designing and painting for myself as well as for personal reasons.
Some of my favorite visual artists are Hokusai Katsushika and Jackson Pollock. Inspirations in photography include Irving Penn, Gordon Parks, and Melvin Sokolsy.
So far in 2013 I work with special needs/disability clients and attend school full-time. Occasionally whenever possible I do some freelance work either designer or creating art. Photography is something that I have mostly done in helping models build their portfolio along with mine in fashion and in portrait photography.
Some of the things I hope to accomplish in the future include completing school for software engineering, establish a major presence online via my website, land the cover of a well recognized magazine such as ELLE or VOGUE, and be well know as a musician as well as many other things. Since a child I always saw myself as a visual artist or an architect, but life had other plans.
