at the Art Gallery’s Square Room
Mandy Anderson was brought up in the fishing village of Musselburgh, East Lothian. At school Mandy was a talented art student. She considered attending art college, but made the decision to take up a career in the financial industry, which lasted for over 22 years.
After having her family Mandy and her husband decided to relocate to Moray to bring up their family for the different pace of life, the beaches and easy access to countryside, which would become a real inspiration for Mandy’s renewed passion in painting.
Once settled in Moray, Mandy joined a course at the Moray Art Centre, Findhorn. This “me time” turned into a way to relax and ultimately resulted in a new career painting.
Mandy loves the variation of painting commission requests that are personal and meaningful to the recipient. However, her own personal favourite is the highland cow and the endless characteristics they let her paint.
Exhibition runs June 28 – July 29
