How has your mandala practice helped you to embrace imperfection?

My general art practice leans towards detail and realism with a search for perfection. Whilst a natural tendency and reflective of my personality, it is a goal often resulting in frustration. Mandala making in my journals is helping me to rethink my idea of perfection – I create in my journal purely for me and find a level of meditative reflection I can’t normally achieve. These mandalas are becoming more organic in nature, constructed with line and are an emptying of my mental chatter onto paper. Often I fill the paper with parts of mandalas rather than the whole, none of it planned or measured. The results are teaching me to let go of expectations of perfection and I am learning to value the process rather than the result. Some parts work really well, some parts don’t. It feels like a metaphor for my life!

Jackie FullerI returned to drawing as a young mother when I was looking for an outlet to express myself and find relaxation. I have occasionally exhibited work and accepted commissions. It has sometimes been agony and ecstasy, but creating art is my saving grace and I can’t imagine life without it. Jackie lives in South Australia. Find Jackie online at www.spareroomstudio.org
