35 years as an artist and multi award winning floral designer. Mandy began teaching art and floral design in her early 20s, this was in 1986. "In my mid 20s I was diagnosed with Cigatera and Ross River fever and then glandular fever. After developing chronic fatigue, and despite my health, my business blossomed, which was an art gallery, floral design studio, school for art and floristry. ...I went on to have a mild stroke and had to seriously change my diet and natural choices. Doctors/specialists had no solutions. I experimented with natural remedies based on my body and my dad's natural therapy knowledge. I learned about the effectiveness of diet, art and natural therapies to holistically address my health issues.' ' I have loved watching others blossom using art, oils and die Mandy has run workshops for over 30 years.
