What ever happened to Mandy Wan ?

Mandy was someone who I hung about with while I was doing the post graduate printmaking course at Wimbledon which finished in 2000.  I always wonder what has happened to her - she was a gritty, hard working Hong Kong girl with lovely work and meticulously high standards.  We exhibited together at Wimbledon Library Gallery at one point along with Pat Paxson who was also very professional  individual.

Mandy also made wonderful ceramic objects.  The work above is about the ancient practice of foot-binding, which she made an installation about which featured rows of casts of foot-bound feet.  It was shown in an exhibition called "The Needle Woman" at the 198 Gallery in Brixton, London (Scroll down the page)
