Thank you Peter
Although I was born and raised
in Haiti, where I lived until 1961, I had never visited Ile-A-Vache or any
other islands adjacent to Haiti's mainland. However, a year ago, Peter
invited me to team up with him to go to Ile-A-Vache and start an artist
coorperative there. I wasn't ready to take up a new project yet, for I've
been supporting four orphanages and schools in Haiti and the bateys of the
Dominican Repulic; But after Peter explained to me how this new project
would help supporting local artists, as well as the elementary school of
the island, I joined him in his effort, and I began immediately to ship
art materials to get the project off the ground.
