I portray women with their thoughts, emotions and their stories. I create these women, these canvasses, in order to show and reassure women, that no matter how turbulent our past has been, it is always steppingstones in the right direction.
These artworks reflect emotions, lessons learned, scars and lives lived, and my intention is to inspire women to live their lives to the fullest.
My name is Gitte Lykke (previously Lacarriere), I am a Danish artist creating original mixed media art under the name MANGT.
I create original collageart on canvas and paper from sustainable materials, with paper being the main material. Originally I have a BA in Interior Design & technology with Fine Arts which I gained in London in 2000, since then I have been self-employed as an interior designer, stylist and designer. My artistic journey began in 2016, and as self-taught artist I work from my studio, Mangt Moodstore, in Nørresundby, Denmark.
