Joining the Evolution team once a week, Mandy brings her illustration and creative mind to the studio. Having finished her Advanced Diploma of Graphic Arts at the Gordon in 2017, Mandy is Evolution’s Digital Artist in 2018.
Mandy grew up drawing in the sand on the beach that was her backyard, went on to work in an assortment of different jobs before settling in to a 30-year career in hospitality. Recognising that she wasn’t using her creativity she completed her Advanced Diploma of Graphic Design to enable her traditional illustrative artwork to translate in to the way Graphic Design was heading.
Away from her desk, Mandy sells her amazing illustrations and artwork pieces at markets over the summer months, as well as volunteering her time and skills to NFP organisations, currently giving a helping hand at Encompass Community Services in Geelong.
We can’t wait to see what Mandy will do with her creative mind and new graphics skills, and we’re so happy to be able to pass on some of our wisdom and knowledge to her as her design career grows.
