Artist Statement

Art by Mandy UK Mandy’s artworks are a representation of the world she see's around her. Her work can be influenced by Pop art, musical arts, symbolism & things in life that she finds intriguing to her. Mandy combines the use of symbolism such as beautiful dripping florals, her portraits have huge eyes and lips with drippy paint lavish golds and glitters that make her subjects shine. Her emotions, her dreams & thoughts all brought together in symbolist paintings to create her bold statement artworks. Mandy has a process of research the beginning of most her piece’s that usually develop from her thoughts. EG: Starman Touched My Soul. Each piece will become a drawing, a sketch, a digital artwork, and mostly a painting. It is a process she developed her own self teaching throughout her life. Her portrait paintings she incorporates the drippy paint style with metallic glittering elements & her love of beautiful colours. Her landscapes are so ethereal with a tendency to depict a beautiful Impressionist Monetesque style of her own. Mandy’s artworks are statement pieces that are a reflection of who she is herself & what she see's or feels & experiences of life around her.
