I believe it is my duty, as an Artist, to convey the conversation between imagination and reality, to expose the unseen tangibility of inner-connectivity within humanity, in the way only Art speaks.
"Some Painters like to plan. They sketch and design a thoroughly thought-out idea before their pigment ever touches the canvas. I'm not like them. I prefer to dip my brush in the paint -be it whatever color I have left, or whichever I'm drawn to in that moment- and impulsively let it coat the canvas. I like to see where the paint takes me, ask it what it wants to be, with a deeper understanding that I'm really speaking to the invisible string that connects us all, and willing it to reveal the deeper truths we don't know we know. I'm not a photo-realist, I only aim to convey enough to get the observer thinking, and the first observer for each of my pieces is me; it's only fitting." -M.E.
"Aloha! My name is Mandy Elliott and I'm a self-taught Vango Artist originally from the Space Coast of Florida and now residing in the heart of Virginia. Creating isn't just a passion for me, it's a part of me. It started as an escape from a troubled home, and it became my heart beat so, I prefer to let my works of art speak for me. If you have questions about me, or my methods of creating, feel free to message me and ask! Thank you for your interest!
