Mandi’s photography is inspired by her natural surroundings. Through her lens she approaches her environment and subjects with curiosity and unique angles. Her work often has impressionistic and otherworldly qualities that evoke a sense of dreaming. All of Mandi's images are created in-camera, oftentimes using multiple exposures and creative lenses.
Mandi received her BFA in Photography from L.I.U. Southampton in 2004. After 25 years raised and living in Long Island, NY, she relocated to Arizona where she enjoyed working with local artists, photographing art and printing giclées of their works at a small company in Scottsdale. In 2007 she made her way to Seattle and created and managed the in-house printing for an art publishing company. Since 2012 Mandi has been residing on Bainbridge Island with her family, raising her children and continuing to enjoy photography and printmaking.
