Announcement   Mandy van Goeije lives in a house full of pets and her family in the Netherlands right next to an orchard and just minutes from the Sea. She was formally educated to be an English teacher and although she loved working with kids and college students, she was lured by the call of the Art Journal. The discovery of telling stories in scribbles, drawings and painting in her diary opened the door to a new language; one that screamed to be developed and in which she could express a thousand times more than she could in words. Art proved to be the language that brings up stories close to the heart and deep in the soul. Helping others discover their innate visual language and imagery and finding their own unique stories has been her mission ever since.

Mandy is captured by the stillness in wee moments in life and the deep thoughts and feelings we can experience. She works them into her journals, paintings, illustrations and writings. The beautiful and light hearted as well as the deeply painful ones. In her work themes from dreams, fairy tales, mysticism, archetypes, myths and personal experience melt together into her own imagery. Her style varies from elegant watercolor to raw mixed media. She finds inspiration everywhere! In nature, in music, in poetry, in art in mysticism. But on the side there is always the art journal; a laboratory in which she experiments with styles and techniques and continues to discover her newfound language that is perpetually developing and growing.

Mandy’s art is occasionally exhibited in art shows and has been published in several books and magazines.
