Mandy is a Wurundjeri-willam (Wurundjeri-baluk patriline) artist and Traditional Custodian of Narrm (Melbourne) and surrounds. She has connections to the Dja Dja wurrung and Ngurai illam wurrung language groups of the Central/Eastern Kulin Nation on her father's side and German on her mothers. Mandy is a recognised artist across many mediums, a qualified archaeologist, leader of the Djirri Djirri Dance Group and a Woiwurrung language specialist.
Mandy’s style consists of traditional motifs of south-eastern Australia, blended with her own contemporary interpretation.
