Narcisse Navarre was born in Havana, Cuba in 1975. She grew up surrounded by nature in a world nearly devoid of media. Prompted by her father's nightly tales of the Greek Gods, folklore, and magic, Narcisse's imagination blossomed into an extraordinary force in her life. In 1984 she emigrated to the United States where she realized her dream of becoming an artist, and author. Narcisse is an avid world traveler and adventure seeker who incorporates her experiences into her work. She lives in an enchanted castle in upstate New York with her husband and cat.
