Mandy Hudson lives and works in London. She studied at Maidstone College of Art (KIAD) and has shown in group exhibitions in the UK and internationally. These include Re-Assemble at Collyer Bristow Gallery 2019; The Marmite Painting Prize in 2016; Flowers of Romance, White Conduit Projects, London 2015, MK Calling at the Milton Keynes Gallery; One Day, Gallery Korridor, Reykjavik and The Contemporary Art Societies Art Futures at the Bloomberg Space in 2007.
She has frequently depicted plants in her work. Originally these were specifically in an urban enviroment; weeds growing out of cracks in pavements, small trees on waste-grounds, office plants and flowers in windows.
More recently she has been focusing in on the plant-forms themselves. On short trips out of London she has spent time making small watercolour studies of individual plants, working these up into oil paintings and prints in her studio.
