MANDY BUDAN - A Canadian Abstract Landscape Painter

I am a Canadian artist who works primarily in acrylic.

I paint abstracts of the landscape, emphasizing and rearranging the elements to show the beauty of the landscape in unexpected ways. Inspired by nature, I use strong colour, discrete shapes and rhythmic patterns to create paintings which can be enjoyed for both their abstract and realistic qualities.
