Corinne Stevie Francilus (born 1987) is a Haitian American artist who was born and raised in Miami, Florida. Art is a constant driving force in her life. She began drawing at five, which led her to be a visual art magnet student in middle school and a fashion design student at Design and Architecture Senior High School (DASH) in the city's Design District.
In 2010, Francilus received her BFA in illustration design with a concentration in painting from Savannah College of Art and Design. In 2011, She was selected to showcase one of her paintings at the Museum Of Contemporary Art in Georgia. Corinne has had her work showcased in galleries and exhibitions all over the world. She has illustrated children's books, designed CD artwork, packaging, and merchandise for various projects and artists.
Francilus believes in the beauty of self-expression and is grateful for the gift of creativity. Between the years of 2014–2016, she toured the US performing music with her band Telekinetic Walrus. Her favorite project to date is the 6ft x 32ft mural she painted for Miami's historic Belafonte TACOLCY Center in 2018. This mural is a part of a community garden project and it depicts two otherworldly beings in a magical garden surrounded by butterflies and crystals.
