Mandeep Dhadialla is a local Artist Printmaker working in linocuts and woodcuts. She has a degree in Fine Art from De Montfort University, England, and has recently spent a year in Kenya to produce a body of work reflecting equatorial and tropical urban botany, flora and fauna in print form. With experience spanning twenty years in museums, arts organisations and exhibiting, Mandeep shares her techniques of relief printmaking and bookmaking through workshops, talks and demonstrations, nationally. Her Leicestershire printmaking home studio, lovingly and humorously named The Laughing Cactus is a nod to nature’s muse whether she is immersed in the Great British Countryside or in the magnificent equatorial climate of her childhood home, Kenya. You can find Mandeep's original prints, handprinted and handbound notebooks, textiles and gift stationery in the store.
