Mandy Peltier is an artist and instructor who predominantly works in the fine art medium of colored pencil, and her award winning drawings are known for appearing realistic in nature. Mandy’s artwork is available at the Highland Galerie in Columbus, GA and has been displayed in several gallery and museum exhibitions, in private collections, and her artwork and tutorials have also been published in various books and magazines, such as Fine Art Connoisseur, Colored Pencil Magazine, and more. Mandy has achieved her signature status through American Women Artists and her CPSA and CPX signature statuses through the Colored Pencil Society of America (CPSA). She has taught various classes and workshops around the United States, including writing tutorials and teaching classes for Winsor & Newton and Michaels Craft Stores, Ann Kullberg, and more. She currently serves as the Membership Director for CPSA and enjoys serving the members of CPSA and advocating for the fine art medium of colored pencil in this capacity. 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! When Mandy is not creating art or teaching an art class, she enjoys spending time with her family in West Central Georgia, working out, reading, drinking copious amounts of coffee, gardening, as well as other creative interests such as crocheting, sewing, soap making, playing the piano, and singing.
