Artist from Haiti - Lesly Cetout
Lesly Cetout was born in 1972 to a poor family in Plain du Nord, south of Cap Haitian. When Lesly's father died, his mother moved the family of six children to Petion-Ville. She worked as a hotel maid until her health failed. In 2002, when Lesly was unemployed and struggling to support his mother and four of his five sisters, he was hired as needs teacher at Wings of Hope Home for Physically and Mentally Challenged Children in Fermathe. read more
His passion, however, is art, and a year later when his paintings began to sell in the United States as well as in Haiti, he left that job and became a full-time artist.
Lesly now lives and paints in Canada
