Born and raised in Port-au-Prince, Sandrine Malary is part of a new generation of Haitian artists
who maintain close ties to their motherland and its culture. She has a degree in Psychology
from the George Washington University, which she uses to relate to her community and to
parent. She is a mother of 4 children. Two home-birthed in Ayiti and two in Oakland, CA. With
self-sustenance as a life approach, Sandrine has homeschooled her kids, built a home garden
and created home-based on-line businesses as an artist and educator. Keeping her roots
strong, she dances Haitian folklore, teaches Kreyol and her art is very inspired by Vodou. Much
of her focus is to uplift, not just Ayiti, but women, black people, and our planet. Sandrine
advocates for green, sustainable living with a focus on health and wellness. You can often find
her walking local trails with her group “Sistas on the Trail”, creating therapeutic copper jewelry
for www.houseofalouba.com, or working on her upcoming vegan cookbook.
