Mantooth’s advice to herself as an artist, “is to choose discovery over perfection every time”. She paints about the current events that are taking place and the world around these events of our time. Mantooth says, “My work is often based on images and stories in the news, people who look out at us every day from the printed page and television screen but who are usually nameless – refugees, rebels, farmers, men and women who tend and defend their land, homes, children, animals and ideas. My intention is that they speak out from the paintings. HERE WE ARE!”

Mantooth has also shown her works in the Sao Paolo Museum of Modern Art in Sao Paulo Brazil, Bahia Museum of Modern Art, The Heard Museum in Phoenix, Arizona, The Queens Museum of Art in Queens, New York among other group and solo exhibitions.
