"Ten years ago, I made a sketch of a mermaid sitting in a shell, and it's been resting inside my sketchbook until I rediscovered it when I moved. In one night of feverish painting, and the next day detailing, I completed the piece in about 13 hours. I managed to capture a larger vision for the original idea, and still maintained the sketchy look around my original idea. In painting this in color, I thought it was going to be a blue monochromatic, but as I painted, the Mermaid demanded that she add a little color. So, her little porch corals are colorfully accompanying her turtle friend, and where her tail-fin hits the water, there is a hint of green glow." -M.E.
"Creating Art is my way of sharing slivers of my own infinity, of communicating in a language that surpasses both time, and definition; (in fact, one of humanity's first languages to surpass time.) Therefore, (to me) my 'bio' is not a list of where I've been, what I've accomplished, and so on, but the Artwork I've created in more than half of my 31 years. Aloha! My name is Mandy Elliott and I'm a self-taught Vango Artist." -M.E. ______________________ _______________________ [[ All artworks protectively sealed, ready to hang, plus professionally shipped with a certificate of authenticity (CoA), Artist Pamphlet, "Talking About Art is Hard..." greeting card to give insight and talking points about your specific painting(s), and a hand written note from the Artist.
