Mandy Keating is a Visual Artist who enjoys using paper-based materials to create 2D and 3D collages and digital art, reusing or reimagining found objects or discarded materials and through her socially engaged practice collaborating with people to find new ways to tell a story visually, whether heritage, social history or pure fiction. Her own art gives audiences the chance to immerse themselves in the story she tells, to smile, to enjoy, to be curious.
