Jean Ryan Hakizimana
I am a Painter, Art Teacher, Author, Editor, Producer and Movie Maker. My trysts with art commenced at an early age as I honed my skills in sketching and painting. My parents were always supportive and encouraging of my need for creative expression.
It has always been my passion to paint and run my own art studio and gallery space. A good number of my paintings have sold nationally and worldwide, from exhibitions both in my studio and across the country. National and international media have also featured my work and many of my paintings have even been used as book covers by eminent authors.
I also strongly believe in giving back to the art community that has given me so much happiness. I regularly give morning and evening classed, all year round for all skill levels, even taking in work students from neighboring colleges and universities.
