MANDY MARTIN

Painter, Nature Lover, Beauty Hunter

Mandy Martin is an award-winning Pennsylvania artist whose work features abstract floral and landscape imagery. She resides in beautiful Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and the wildflowers and rich landscape of the region inform her paintings. Mandy is also a beach lover and enjoys escaping in the winter to lush Caribbean destinations which also inform her color palettes and landscape work.

Mandy’s work has been part of multiple juried exhibitions including at the New Hope Art Center in New Hope, PA; the Annmarie Arts Center in Solomon, MD; and the Yellow Springs Art Show in Chester Springs, PA.


Her striking paintings are available online as well as at select shows and exhibitions in the mid-Atlantic states, where many of her collectors reside. She welcomes commissions and interior design collaborations.

It is Mandy’s hope that her work will inspire viewers to look more carefully at the world around them, to discover beauty in unexpected places, and to take care of the earth.

IN HER OWN WORDS

My acrylic paintings are about feeling it all! I paint botanical subjects with splashing paint, bold lines and vibrant colors. When I look at flowers or a landscape, I see a miraculous display of color and movement unfolding before my eyes. Nature seems to accomplish the task of survival and procreation with such beauty and ease. To capture that feeling of wonder, I exaggerate color, contrast and shape. Every brushstroke reflects the freedom to express what is moving me.

Poppies are featured in many of my paintings, symbolizing resilience and rebirth. I practice intuitive painting, and my work explores layers of texture, rhythm and movement as I interpret it in the natural world. When I see poppies sprouting each year, I am amazed by how something so beautiful and fragile can be so resilient. It is this combination of fragility and strength that inspires me to paint them again and again.
