About Me

For most of my life, I didn't consider myself a creative person. I loved to make art, but I struggled to come up with my own ideas.  That all changed in January 2021 when I committed to drawing one cartoon every day - a habit I've kept up with for the last 3 years.

With Miss Manda Art, I want to help other people see that creativity is a skill that can be developed—not something you have to be born with.

Before becoming an artist, my first passion was teaching. I have always loved working with kids - especially seeing their eyes light up when they learn a new concept. Even more than that, though, the best part of my time teaching in the Las Vegas public school system was pushing my students to use their creative muscles in new ways. 

Although I'm no longer a full time teacher, I use my knowledge and experience to help others learn to become more creative.
