Manda Jean is a Melbourne-based, emerging artist with a keen interest in Australian botanicals.
She draws inspiration from the native vegetation within local suburban green corridors, and enjoys exploring methods to represent this plant-life in different ways.
With a non-artistic academic background, she has developed a daily drawing practice as a way to balance out her day job in data analysis, while providing her with an opportunity to improve her skills.
Her chosen mediums include fineliners, paint markers, acrylics and aerosols, but also enjoys working with new materials and objects.
