Mani Parkes

Following an Art Foundation course at Lincoln College of Art, Mani studied Illustration at UWE Bristol and then transferred to Edinburgh College of Art where she graduated in 1997 with a BA (Hons ) in Visual Communication.

Mani says: “The day to day sights that I see often inspire my paintings, cycling through the higgledy piggledy streets I love the charming buildings and quirky characters that I see. I love nature, a beautiful pair of spotty wellingtons or a stripey scarf. Sitting at my living room table I turn my simple sketchbooks doodles into cheerful paintings, I like to use acrylic paint combining a muted palette of chalky blues, greys and whites with an uplifting dash of red.”
