Mandy is based in Johannesburg and holds an MA in Fine Art from the University of Stellenbosch (2003). Her art practice comprises prints and drawings in various media. She prefers to make narrative series through exploiting the characteristic of the multiple offered by printmaking. For many years, her work has dealt with different aspects of human relationships.
Mandy’s current work comments on the divisive nature of contemporary life, from the politics of our time through to our most intimate relationships. Feeling that a sense of peace will be reached only through committed negotiation, tolerance and compromise, her latest series is titled Extending the olive branch.
Her other work has included lecturing at UNISA, teaching privately, art consulting, and curating print exhibitions. She is the director of outoftheCUBE, an online visual arts platform.
