Marie E. Saint-Cyr migrated to the United States from Haiti at the age of eight. She currently works as an Arts Administrator and Educator in Wyandanch, New York. Her art contrasts the charm and vibrancy of Caribbean pastorals with the urgency and layered energy of urban landscapes. Marie studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology and at Lorenzo de’ Medici in Florence, Italy. While there, she traveled throughout Europe, studying and observing various art forms. In 2019, Marie was awarded a one-year residency with the Haiti Cultural Exchange.
