Mandy Has been a coloured pencil artist for over 30 years. She was drawn to the medium (haha) because of its ability to be taken everywhere and its safety around kiddies (as opposed to oil painting and acrylics). Pencils take a large degree of concentration and tenacity, which Mandy found peacful and soothing - It is common knowledge nowdays of the health benefits that can be provided by the mindful activity of drawing and now days Mandy puts her early black and white sketches on her facebook page - every day free for other people to colour in
