The meaning of life is to find your gift

The purpose of life is to give it away - Pablo Picasso

Book Week and beyond!

School Sessions are available for JP and Primary students - educational, lively and interactive with collaborative drawing bringing to life and characterizing favourite animals! I explain the importance of a sketchbook, show the students original paintings and go through the process I use to create a picture book. Activities are provided for students to keep that creative enthusiasm going afterwards!

Hands on drawing workshops for primary students are also offered.

For Secondary students, workshops focus on the process of children's book illustration and writing, highlighting the importance of storytelling through images and how to find that balance between words and images as an author/illustrator (also available for Primary students).

Mandy is also available for festivals and international workshops.

Artist in Residence Sessions

Invite Mandy to take up residence for a day in your school or public library, painting a canvas from start to finish incorporating one or more characters from her books. Each canvas is an original and no two are ever the same.

Students and library visitors are welcome to observe, ask questions and generally have a good chat about everything painting. Subjects covered include materials used, the mixing process of paint and the benefits of creating colour charts.

The finished canvas will be available to then reside in that library.
