Mandy Maxwell Mooneyham is a multidisciplinary artist, illustrator, and graphic designer working in Paragould, Arkansas. She works mainly with surrealism, chairs and trees, but also does portraits in oil on canvas. Her work focuses on realistic details, and color exploration. Mandy welcomes commissions.
Over the years my work has focused into a singular subject: boldly colored trees growing from chairs in ambiguously undefined space. For me, the chair tree is the visual representation of ourselves, body and mind; how we can remain stationary, but still be growing, branching, reaching. Each person builds a uniquely structured body, while their mind grows organically into something we can’t always control through experiences and influence. Through this lens I can interpret actions and emotions in a very strange and tight parameter.
