Hi - I am Mandy and I have been a full time artist for 30 years. I have constantly made art and I have never had more fun creating than NOW.
Having designed a series of limited edition prints of my most popular work - I am now on a mission to create a website to house them that is like EXPERIENCING A JOURNEY
EVERY MONTH there is a new set of web pages THEMED AROUND A DIFFERENT LIMITED EDITION PRINT. There is so much art - and it is all different, and since we all have the attention span of goldfish (true fact) - you can get the art fed to you in bite size pieces with DIFFERENT little mini-SITES sent to your inbox......LIKE THESE ones
EVERY WEEK - The newsletter subscribers get sent a finished web page AS I MAKE THEM - its all very structured and includes a DIFFERENT COLLECTION OF WORK that fits into the monthly theme. There is access to original art and special competitions and things for subscribers ..check out some of the series that went with the limited edition "beach"
EVERY DAY - I upload what i am doing onto my facebook page - As I am learning to create art out of new technology - it is great to get some feedback, get quotes, and interact with people about what they would like to see in the finished work
By subscribing to my Newsletters you get to join me on a journey of discovery. As an artist I have spent my entire life working on creating. I spend extraordinary amounts of time on projects and mediums until I feel the learning curve is over and move on. But I have never felt more excited by a new pathway than this. It feels like all of my skills are being utilized - with the colour, balance, harmony, creativity, the complication, strategy and the maths (I LOVE THIS STUFF - its like a giant video game, only you get something useful at the end)
At this point these websites are fairly mundane and look and feel like any other (although I would hope you think they are good). But this is because the learning curve of achieving real art in website making is HUGE. Every time I think I have a handle on which direction to go I discover there is another language I have to learn (yay...no I mean that...I really do love this stuff). But every month I learn something new which gets me closer to my goal.
I hope you join me in this journey, and when you get sent the link to my new website newsletter in your email - go and take a look, not with the attitude of shopping on yet another site with stuff for sale (although that does pay my bills) - but with an attitude of looking at the site itself - and how slowley over time they are becoming more sophisticated - until one day you click that button....and really experience some art
this is my goal
