Mandy Peltier is an artist and instructor who predominantly works in the fine art medium of colored pencil. Her award winning drawings are known for being photorealistic in nature, and her artwork and tutorials have been published in various magazines and books as well as juried into prestigious exhibitions through the Colored Pencil Society of America, American Women Artists, Ohio Arts Council, Richeson 75, and more. Mandy has achieved her signature status through American Women Artists, she is a part of Ann Kullberg’s SOAR network of colored pencil instructors who travel the U.S. teaching colored pencil workshops, and she is also an art instructor at three different art centers around Northeast Ohio. Mandy currently serves as the Membership Director for the Colored Pencil Society of America.

Her desire is to portray her subjects in such a way that they cause the viewer to pause, reflect, and see the beauty in what is too often taken for granted or never noticed, and she hopes her love and excitement for colored pencil is contagious to everyone she talks to!
