Sherman Ismael


Sherman Ismael is a carpenter who lives with his wife and daughter in a bayside ti kai on Mahaut’s lively main road. The house was built in the 1960s while Sherman’s father worked in Curaçao during the oil boom, sending home money for its construction. Sherman grew up in a similar one nearby, but from the time he became aware of this house he ‘liked it’ and ‘I would cry and beg him to leave it for me.’  

Sherman’s father was a baker and mason, who was known for his fine construction of stone ovens for bakeries around Dominica.
