Delice, Mireille (Haitian, b. 1965)

Born in 1965 in the coastal city of Leogane, Mireille Delice learned the art of flag making from her friend  Myrlande Constant.  Like Constant,  Delice worked  in a wedding dress factory in Port-au-Prince. She started creating flags after dreaming about the Vodou Lwa (or spirit) Erzulie. Her first drapo  Vodou featured a heart, the imagery associated with Eruzlie. Delice established her own atelier and continues to make flags inspired by both Vodou and everyday life in Haiti.
