“I see life through the eyes of a dreamer… It moves before me in shades of black and white…”
Design: Dominique did not have your usual upbringing, she was practically raised to be the son her Parents never had… Since the age of six years old, she was painting her fathers rental properties in Baltimore. At the time he was just starting out with his business he did not have the financial means to hire anyone to help him – So in stepped herself and her older sister. Mind you, she had to stand on a stool to reach everything and we were the young ages of 6 and 9. She was most definitely not raised with a silver spoon in my mouth. But from doing hard work at such a young age, she can fix most things a man can’t and can always walk into a room and recognize the potential it could have, once she gets her interior design fingers on it…
Fashion: When Dominique was younger her grandmother used to babysit her and her sister. She was an amazing seamstress and fashionista who quickly instilled her love of fashion on her. She was an avid reader of all of her fashion magazines, VOGUE, Harper’s Bazaar and many more. She could never get enough. She was designing her dresses from when I was little girl. She even designed her own wedding dress!
Photography: In addition to her appreciation for fashion, Dominique always loved to capture real life moment’s – That’s when she realized that her camera would never leave her side. It is her true passion and her first love. It allows her to show the world through her own eyes. And along with things she loves, Fashion, Interior Design, & Humanitarian work.
Dominique feels that she has a moral obligation to not only herself to lead a good life but to help others as well. Dominique donates a portion of the fine art sales from her photography to several organizations including but not limited to: Save Darfur & Enough Project,which fight to end crimes against humanity and fight to end genocide and the Henri Riquet Perpingnand Foundation which goes toward helping displaced youth from the recent hurricane in my parents beloved country of Haiti. Dominique also enjoys empowering men & women through photography with my photo session “Photo Therapy” so that everyone can be a model for a day.
Her work has been featured in a variety of DC hotspots including MTV’s “Real World DC” house, DC Modern Luxury, Bloomingdales, The Dunes Gallery, Neiman Marcus, FotoDC Flash, Studio H Gallery, Capitol File, O’Neill Studios & FotoWeek.
