Marie Saint-Cyr received a BFA in Fine Arts and a minor in Art History from the Fashion Institute of Technology. In 2018, Marie participated in The Downtown Brooklyn Arts Management Fellowship, a collaboration between four prominent Brooklyn arts and culture organizations: where she learned about core areas of arts management, including Development, Marketing/Community Engagement, Education, Curatorial/Programming, Production/Tech, and Administration/Finance.
As a Haitian immigrant, Marie was deeply impacted by various art cultural organizations, through their free workshops and educational programs. These experiences not only enabled her to learn to express herself through art, but she also became very interested in the work it takes to make these programs happen.
Saint-Cyr Art Studio was born out of Marie’s passion for Art, Education, Business and her desire to give back to her community.
Within her art practice, Marie creates paintings which explore how we interact within imagined space and evokes the charm and vibrancy and Caribbean pastorals alongside the urgency and layered energy of urban landscapes.
When Marie is not painting or facilitating art programs, she can be found backpacking through countries and trying out new food.
