Wildlife artist Janet Mandel draws inspiration for her unique animal sketches and photographs from the antics of her own animals. This Kennedy, NY-based fine artist works from the many reference photos she’s taken in the wild, whether it be at the zoo or in her own backyard. Her collection of animal-inspired artwork includes her Animal Mandala collection, featuring a series of acrylic paintings based on the mandala, an ancient technique involving repetitive design in a circular form. The result is a beautifully symmetrical piece that evokes contemplation.
Mandel is also revered for her collection of bird paintings and custom-made commissioned pet portraits. She often showcases a selection of original animal paintings at Sugarloaf Craft Festivals as well as archival, limited edition reproduction paintings that celebrate her unique work at a great price point. Stop by the Janet Mandel Fine Art booth at the next Sugarloaf event to find even more animal fine art, including framed reproductions, greeting cards and more by this popular artist. You’re sure to be captivated by each piece’s unique beauty.
