Amy Théard is a Haitian-born artist based in New York City. Her deep-rooted love of the arts came about at an early age. During a year-long stay in her native country of Haiti in 2012, she finally discovered her true love for painting. Daughter of the late famous Haitian artist Carol Théard, and niece of artist Jean Piérre Théard, Amy is continuing her family’s prestigious legacy in the Haitian art world.
Focusing mainly on color and movement, her style is bright and imaginative, with a unique contemporary flare not found in typical Haitian art. “I want to touch the world with what I create and bring a sense of awe and wonder to each person who encounters my work,” states the artist.
Amy Théard’s work has been featured in a New York-based art gallery. She has commissioned paintings for celebrity clientele and has been recognized by Casa Frela Art Gallery pas a featured artist in their 2013 Harlem Art Walking Tour. She has been interviewed by Revolt TV, profiled in Lucky and Uptown Magazines, and is currently in the midst of a 4-month exclusive residency at Milk River Brooklyn, which resulted in a Zagat.com feature.
Most recently, she became a published artist, with her work being highlighted in “Présence Féminine Dans l’art Haïtien“, a book that showcases works from top female Haitian artists.
