Mandi is a free lance photographer and self-taught graphic designer born and raised in sunny California. Her artistic path began in her high school photography class, where she discovered her passion for film, as well as fostered her fervor for fashion photography. A few years later (and with a degree in photography), her direction changed completely and her passion for art evolved into a contemporary graphic tee shirt line in memory of her brother, who had very suddenly left this earth. This new road led her to not only honor his life, but also allowed her to grow as a graphic designer as she learned to translate her inspirations through the medium of design. As a designer and photographer, Mandi has developed from concept to completion the artistic direction of a successful lifestyle brand. Now focusing solely on freelance work, she has had the privilege of collaborating with some amazing designers on look books, photo shoots and editing, as well as private label and design development.
