My name is Mandy and I live in Virginia Beach, VA. My journey as a painter began in June of 2013 and although I did not get started until I was 31, I cannot imagine my life without art and the opportunity to share it with others. Painting has made me fall in love with life and I like to show it by using bright colors to exaggerate the feelings I get when I paint. My favorite technique is to take simple photos/ideas and interpret them with vibrant colors to express the emotions hidden in them. Thank you for visiting my page and for helping make it possible for me to do what I love. If you would like to contact me to request a personalized painting, you may do so at firstname.lastname@example.org.
