A landmark painting proudly adorns the wall of the shop visibly displayed as you enter. It was painted especially for Mai by the famous & renowned Haitian painter Herold Alvares. The artwork, or tree symbolism displays five women (best friends of Mai) who have proudly been friends, “deeply rooted” since grade school.
A majority of all artwork displayed in Minouchic Boutique were painted by Haitian artist Mr. Herold Alvares, who was born armless and paints these beautiful masterpieces with his feet & mouth. Many of these fabulous pieces were painted right in Minouchic. Original paintings and reprints are being sold in the store.
