96. Developing an Art Practice and Designing and Developing Art Programs
By Nache Snow
Marie E. Saint-Cyr is a Haitian-American artist whose paintings evoke the charm and vibrancy of Caribbean pastorals alongside the urgency and layered energy of urban landscapes. The bright and saturated colors of the paintings express the strength and vibrancy of the Haitian people. Marie’s love for the arts comes out in many forms as she effectively juggles multiple endeavors to include running an art practice (selling paintings and creating murals) and consulting (designing and managing art programs and developing art classes). Additionally, she’s a program associate, an assistant at an art gallery, and a preschool TA. In this episode, we discuss how to stay organized and track finances, building a business in the arts, and the power of networking.
