Today marks an amazing day for local artist Mandy Ahlfors, who runs the beautiful Muse Gallery and Art Studio in Heage.

We already know and love Mandy's work, and we're absolutely overjoyed to tell you that Mandy has now been heralded as one of the 100 greatest living artists in the world by Remko Spaan, acclaimed owner of the Sequoia Art company. 

Her work has been chosen for a very exclusive and prestigious new concept, being turned into a design manually printed on a strictly limited edition designer T-shirt.

100 artists have been chosen, with one new design unveiled each day for 100 days. There are only 100 of each available, each with their individual number (0-99) printed on the sleeve, and each sold for between $100 and $500. Now that really is limited edition!

Each artist's design has to be completely new and unique, never seen before by the public, and Mandy has been very careful to keep her creation under wraps...until now! The Heage based artist's day has come, and her creation is the featured t-shirt for today (Sun 29th Jan).

Mandy's 100 individual t-shirts are now on sale EXCLUSIVELY at, and its featured on the front page for the whole of today, all the way until 11pm (don't worry if you're reading this after Sunday and missed it, if there are any left you can still buy them by following the link to previous tees...)

One of the pleasures of running thebestof Heanor and Ripley is that we get access to sneek previews of what's going on in the area, and Mandy has kindly let us take a photo of her work, under strict promise not to publish it until her t-shirt is on sale. Now that sales have started, we're really proud to unveil her amazing design for everyone in Heanor and Ripley to see.

If you want to get your hands on one of these very rare and incredibly valuable collector's items, just visit and place your order, but you'd better be quick - with a design as great as this, we reckon they'll be sold out pretty quickly...

Find out more about Mandy's work and her fantastic Gallery and Studio here.

If you miss out on the T-shirt, or if that's not your type of art expression, there are loads more unique hand painted works on display in the Gallery, call in and get your hands on your favourite before it's snapped up.
