About Me

I am a self taught artist with a love of fine detail and tiny brushes, using watercolour as my medium.

I particularly enjoy painting subjects from the natural world such as birds, animals and flowers.

All of my paintings start with a detailed freehand drawing in pencil, before the paint is applied in gradual washes and the detail is added with tiny brushstrokes.

My work has featured in the Hilliard Society of Miniaturists’ Annual Exhibitions in 2018 and 2019 in Wells, Somerset. The 2020 exhibition is currently online, featuring five of my paintings, which can be viewed on the Hilliard Society website: https://www.hilliardsociety.org/mandygarratt.html
