Mandy Broughton

Mandy Broughton Herne Bay ArtistArt has been a passion for me all my life. I come from a creative family that encouraged lateral thinking, observation, and having fun making things. For many years, and while pursuing a career in marketing, I have taken art classes including life drawing, sculpture, painting, drawing, graphic design, art history and carpentry. I eventually decided to give in whole heartedly to my passion and become a full time artist.

I grew up in the United States, have lived in Switzerland for two years and have finally decided to call Kent (England) my home. I enjoy water sports, walking my dog, cooking, dancing and beach combing. All these interests strongly influence my artwork.

I exhibit my work in the UK, mostly in Kent, and also in Northern France. My paintings have been sold as far afield as South Africa and the United States.

As you can see from my web site, my art is versatile and I enjoy trying new techniques, media and subjects. My work can be used for special occasions such as weddings, birthdays or anniversaries. For example, I can make personalised T-shirts, wedding favours, cards, table decorations, etc.
