Sarah Mandis is twenty one years old and currently in her junior year of undergrad.  She was born and raised in the small beach town of the Outer Banks, North Carolina, growing up with her mother, father, younger brother and sister.  She currently attends the University of Tampa, Florida pursing double degrees in Fine Arts and Museum Studies, as well as an Art Therapy minor.  Moving to the city of Tampa, Florida, where there is art and culture around every corner, was a refreshing and inspiring change for Sarah, compared to the isolated beach town she grew up in.  Over the past couple years, Sarah’s passion for art has only become stronger, and her skills have grown immensely.  Delving deeper into her own creativity by constantly seeking and learning new facets of art every day, her love of art, along with her need to share it with those around her, is what drives this young artist’s dedication.
