I was birthed into an artist at the time of becoming a mother. Mandy Thompson

Amanda’s is not only an exceptionally talented visual artist, she’s also a deep thinker expressed as an eloquent and poetic writer.

I draw inspiration from the transcendence of the natural world. Mandy Thompson

Her pieces… evoke an essence of freedom and are an invitation to engage in the natural beauty of life. When art speaks deeply, a connection takes place between the artist and the viewer, a conversation that stirs questions and whispers answers.

  • What’s compelling feeling is driving and motivating her art these days.
  • The importance of outsourcing some of your creativity.
  • How she’s doing the Art-O-Matic as a way to connect with people all over the world.
  • Mandy’s definition of success, and excellent success advice to artists.
  • One very different thing Mandy is doing that virtually no one else does to grow her following by serving and connecting with her audience.

Mandy’s Painting Caption — “The More” Concept:
For those moments when you feel the Presence of More. Those “thin places” that leave a hint of life beyond us. For hope and anticipation–for transcendence–for living lives that are bigger than we are.
