2018 Greenwell Springs Regional Library Review
Women of color have been telling their stories for many, many years, now. As women observers, we see something unique about the narrative that governs their lives and the lives of all women of the sisterhood. Subject matter speaks to us on so many crucial levels of our understanding emanating from the storytellers’ vast experience. Petrouchka Moise, a first generation Haitian American artist, is one of these powerful storytellers. She has been on a journey of adversity ending in triumph; thus she seeks to illustrate that “road traveled” in her beautiful works of art. Overcoming cultural and language barriers and norms, her expressive art has become the foundation that permeates her personal and professional life. Moise’s work combines technique with a spicy mix of poetry that is a powerful combination for any artist.
