My name is Maybeline Dugue-Despagne. I was born in Washington DC and raised in Okap (Cap-Haitien). I moved back to the USA at 16 and I have been living in Florida ever since. I’ve always been passionate about photography, crafts and drawing. My art is a reflection of my childhood, a time in my life that I cherish a lot.

I am a mother of three beautiful girls. I own a shipping company, CAS Xpress. We have proudly been exporting goods to Haiti for the past 10 years. I’m also a part time photographer and I have an online gift shop, Artistik Crafts, where I sell my handmade jewelry along with some of my artwork.

I am grateful and proud to have been selected to have my work displayed at the Embassy and I would like to thank to Embassy of Haïti for this amazing opportunity.
