Mandi Street Bio

Mandi Street is a landscape artist and printmaker working from her studio at home in Exeter. Her work most often represents local landscapes, from the South West Coast Path and elsewhere. She captures the energy of a place and time, producing work inspired by the spirit of places she has visited on her walks, with a focus on light, texture and colour.

Mandi was trained as a painter and has a BA in Fine Art. She spent 30 years teaching art, as well as working as headteacher of a local school. She now has time to focus on her own work and participates in local exhibitions and taking part in Devon Open Studios.

Currently, Mandi has moved away from the canvas and most frequently works on paper, using collage methods, oil pastel, watercolour and relief printmaking.

‘While I trained as a painter, and work in a range of 2D media, for the the last 6 years printmaking has also been a preferred medium, specifically linoprinting. For me, mark-making and texture in relief printing does the work of the paintbrush, giving work its own life, direction and force. My approach to printmaking is quite loose and I enjoy going where the materials take me.

As I favour a reduction printing method, where only one piece of lino is used, prints are available in a very ‘limited’ number.’

All work is based on her drawings or photographs taken first hand in the landscape.
