On March 5, 2019 Yolène was on the panel of Haitian art and Haitian artists held by the US organization, Artists Talk On Art (ATOA), at the National Arts Club in NYC.

In May 2018 Yolène was approached by the play "Once on this island" producers to create an art piece to hang at the theater, Yolène had the idea to have instead a group of primarily Haitian-American students from Williamsburg High School of Architecture and Design paint a mural under her guidance. The completed 5' x 10' mural, inspired by the production, was unveiled and installed on June 6, 2018.

Yolène's oil painting "Canal d'Avezac", Camp Perrin, Haiti was in a traveling exhibition which opened on May 29, 2017 at the Erie Canal Museum in Syracuse, NY.


Yolène's work is now in the Brooklyn Museum permanent collection as part of the Vivian Hewitt Haitian Art Collection donated to the museum in 2015.

Yolène’s paintings are featured on the covers (front and back) of the special art issue (#11) of the NY based literary magazine A Gathering of the Tribes .
