Mandy Peltier is an artist and instructor who predominantly works in the fine art medium of colored pencil. She works in Northeast Ohio where she also lives with her husband and three children. Her award winning drawings are known for being photorealistic in nature, and her artwork and tutorials have been published in various magazines and books as well as juried into prestigious exhibitions through the Colored Pencil Society of America, American Women Artists, Richeson 75, and more. Mandy is a part of Ann Kullberg’s SOAR network of colored pencil instructors who travel the U.S. teaching colored pencil workshops, and she is also an artist at Stella’s Art Gallery in Mentor, Ohio where she sells her artwork and teaches classes. In addition, Mandy currently serves as the Membership Director for the Colored Pencil Society of America. Her desire is to portray her subjects in such a way that they cause the viewer to pause, reflect, and see the beauty in what is too often taken for granted or never noticed, and she hopes her love and excitement for colored pencil is contagious to everyone she talks to!
