Mandy has just unveiled her new collection for Spring 2017, at The Green Man Gallery, Buxton.
Using an imaginative mix of Resin, Inks and Water-colours, the 13 debut artworks have been well received by both fellow resident artists and the public alike, with the first piece selling whilst Mandy was still hanging them for their opening exhibition.
Here, Mandy shares her thoughts on this exciting new work and the inspiration behind it….
“Colour has a dramatic effect on our emotions, it can alter how we feel, it can bring back memories of moments in time.
For me, the sea featured highly while growing up, from the crystal clear waters of North Africa to the deep green of the Irish Sea around Anglesey.
Summers spent on Anglesey with the bright blue July days, when the sun is warm and high and the water gleams, evenings are orange and red in the sunset, nights are emerald and black with glints of light in the surf. Much of my art features seascapes around Anglesey.
Inland, I love to visit open gardens and wide open spaces. Many of my photos give me the inspiration to create very vibrant pieces, sometimes it is just a single flower like the head of a simple dandelion and sometimes it is a fabulous riot of colour.”
With the initial collection launched, Mandy is now adding to the collection with more singular pieces.
