Dear Nicole, Love your work! "I left my heart in Haiti", is true for my wife Sandra and I, We landed in Port-au-Prince a little over a year ago as guest speakers for a large Salvation Army gathering of (over 1,900) young people. What a wonderful four days of Praise and Worship in the little town Fon des Negres, where The Salvation Army operates a Hospital Clinic and a school. You will also find photographs from the coast and other locations on my FAA site. We look forward to coming back againone day in the future. Oh! We are retired Salvation Armt Officers/Pastors and have gospel singing ministry. www.mullinsfamilysg.com May God bless you in your work and your art! Sincerely, Bob W Mullins

Thank you so much B Wayne for the spiritual work you are doing in Haiti. I will surely look for those photos on your FAA site. Thank you for the blessing; and may God bless you and your family too!

Nicole, what a beautiful painting and thorough, scholarly description - although extremely heartbreaking, it is much better to know the truth. The excellence of your work is constantly an inspiration for me as something to aim towards! Best Wishes to you for a very happy 2013!!! I'm waiting in line for your book.

Wow, Mars! Such encouraging and powerful statements! My book is practically ready; yesterday I have received a hard cover copy, and a soft cover copy of my book. I am very satisfied. Today I faxed the signed "Picture Book Channel Availability Approval Form". My book titled: "History and Culture of Haiti",will be available for sale soon through distribution channels like: Amazon, Barnes and Noble. In my book I had acknowledged by name all the FAA artists who had commented on my artworks. I think they all have been a part of the creative process. This is my way of giving all of us some publicity on my own. I thank you very much, Mars!

Haiti before 1804 was called Hispaniola & the people who were living there were Indians & they were very pacific & they have Dufferent tribes,

Welcome to my site Rolande! By your name I guess you are a native of Haiti. It is such a pleasure to meet you, Rolande. I appreciate your comment. Haiti as you see had many names. The two tribes living in the island at that time were the peaceful Arawaks,and the Caribs they called the island, Ayiti. Then came Chritopher Columbus who called the island, Hispaniola, meaning "Petite Espagne" in French, and "Little Spain" in English; Christopher Columbus called the island Hispaniola because it reminds him of Spain, Then the French came in the island in 1625. There were always hostilities between the French and the spanish. On September 20, 1697, the Peace Treaty of Ryswick confers the western 1/3 of the island to France, that France called Saint-Domingue. The eastern 2/3 of the island was conferred to Spain; Spain called his side of the island Santo Domingo. Haiti kept its French given name, Saint Domingue, until January 1, 1804. This is when Haiti regained its Taino, its Arawak, and its Creole name of Ayiti; in French, Haiti, or Republique d'Haiti. I know my description is of an epic proportion.
