In Little Haitian-American Girl, Lavett Ballard depicts a young girl centered in the frame with big deep hopeful eyes, grasping at the American flag. Her face and body enveloped in both the Haitian and American flag, symbolizing both of her identities and homes. This piece contains mixed-media paper collage representing the Haitian flag which is mirrored on the bottom of the painting.
