"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.
"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!
