Thank you for visiting my gallery. My name is Mandy VanGilder and art has always been a part of my life. I have four beautiful teenage daughters who consume most of my time but every once and awhile I find a moment to grab a brush and pursue my passion. I'm a huge fan of vivid colors and it shows in my work. I've painted everything from cartoons to portraits but landscapes are where I shine. My home is filled with dozens of paintings and I've always been hesitant to part with them but a wise man said I should "share my gift with world." I really come alive when I'm painting and I can only hope the feeling I get is conveyed in my art.
