This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following is from the artist's website: http://www.anderson-mandette.com>

Margo Mandette was born in Bordeaux France on St. Patrick's day 1940. The only daughter of a prosperous trade merchant, the household maintained servants and a nanny. Margo speaks five languages as a result of this upbringing.

Extraordinarily talented, she was admitted to the Belle's De Artes Academy at 13. By 17 she had traveled to the United States numerous times. Because of his activities in South American politics on the side of the poor Gabriel Mandette (Margo's Father) was assassinated. At nineteen, Margo and her mother fled South America with what they could carry on their persons. The following year, Margo's mother died of a broken heart.

Margo toured the United States with a cousin to try to heal her own sense of loss and grief. After 2 years Margo and her cousin settled in Mesa, Arizona and began to teach Catholic Parochial School. Margo's exceptional abilities as a teacher became evident. Soon she was teaching her talented students art after school. Her extracurricular art classes expanded enough to open her own gallery and teaching facility. She called it Casa De Artiste's and
showed the work of many prominent local artists and taught there as well.

Like her husband, she earned more money from selling her own art than she did all year as a teacher. Soon she became a full time artist. In 1975 she married Robin Anderson and together the couple has shared 25 years of success and happiness. Currently they maintain a residence in Jerome Arizona and open their studios to the public. Visitors from all over the world have toured the spacious galleries in what was once the Old Mingus High School. Now renamed the Old Mingus Art Center, the building houses an extensive collection of artwork by Margo Mandette and Robin Anderson.
