About Mandie

Visual Artist | Professional High-Fiver

I paint my images to emulate the vibrancy and glow of a stained-glass window.

Avid Mango Lover | Occasional Jedi

I believe that sharing our light is the most important thing we can do in inspiring and loving others, and like a stained-glass window, our full brilliance is revealed only by having that light shine through. ​ 

Bookworm Hobbit | Sneezer Extraordinaire

"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven."


 -Matthew 5:16
