Forbidden Love

Forbidden Love ~ 8"x10" acrylic on panel ~ 2011

Sandrah Chalmers was born in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. She and her family moved to Miami, FL in 1991. She earned a Bachelor Degree from Florida International University, in International Relations with a focus on Latin America & Caribbean studies. Sandrah is a self taught Artist who's passion for Art began since the age of 4. Her inspiration derives from her love for life, nature, and from her own personal experiences. She now resides in Atlanta, Georgia. Her ultimate belief is that creativity is a gift that holds no boundaries. Sandrah  is a proud member of the Atlanta Artists Center, The Museum Of Contemporary Art and the French Alliance. Sandrah is fluent in French, Creole & English.


My dream is to one day work as a Full-Time Artist. I would love to have my work exhibited in many art galleries and museums around the world (before I die). I would love art collectors to own some of my pieces in their home. I will keep on believing in my dream because they say that dreams do come true for those who believe.
