About

Jessie Emile est une artiste et entrepreneur basée à Montréal d’origine Haïtienne. Elle fait son introduction dans le monde de l’art à travers le chant et l'écrit de chansons, avant d’entrer le monde de l’art visuel. Créer et exprimer lui on permit versatilité et brutalité. Elle focalise son travail sur l’identité et l’individualité en utilisant la photographie, la musique, la vidéo, la peinture et l’écriture. L’instinct et l’intention sont deux éléments clé à son art. Le processus est aussi important que le résultat final, si ce n’est pas plus.

Jessie Emile is a Montreal based artist and entrepreneur of Haitian origins. Growing up, singing and songwriting were her introduction to the art world before entering the visual world. Creating and expressing allowed her versatility and rawness. Her work focuses on ‘identity’ and ‘individuality’ using photography, music, video, painting, and writing. Instinct and intent are key elements to her work. The process is as important as the final result, if not more.
