Mandy McIntosh Art Work


A3 drawings by Mandy McIntosh in oil pastel, marker and coloured pencil.

‘Eyeballing myself as a girl in the 80s making fashion illustrations of jumpers at Trent Poly always falling onto faces, trying to pinpoint the skull of who would wear this? These are beyond that, beyond the body, just the face.’

The drawings are executed spontaneously in the studio in reaction to each other. Currently there are 14 for sale.

‘This is completely about what I’ve always wanted to do which is make stuff and sell it and in the future there will be wearables.

Mandy McIntosh’s studio is in Glasgow and work for sale can be viewed there on request.
