Biography / Company Profile: 

Mandy has been printmaking for a number of years. Her practice moving seamlessly between the themes of the domestic interior and her abstract designs.

She employs etching techniques in creating images of furniture and interior accessories, fed by her admiration of iconic designers such as Philip Starck, Ray & Charles Eames and Eero Aarnio.

Her abstract work is a lively mix of flat colour and textures, produced by printing with found textural materials. Inspiration is drawn from designers and artists such as Lucienne Day and Prunella Clough. She relishes the immediacy of making marks with found objects, manipulating them to full effect. Juxtaposed with this are her etchings which, by their nature, require a more step-by-step approach. Often the processes overlap providing truly innovative and exciting work.

Mandy is keen to explore new and inventive printmaking techniques, whilst retaining a strong visual language, making her work instantly recognisable.
