Tell us about your mandala practice.

Mandala making has become a beautiful creative practice for me and has enabled me to grow and explore many themes and materials as a mixed media artist. I love the intuitive flow when creating motifs and designs inside these little sacred circles and creating multi-layered mixed media mandalas bring me so much joy. Creating a mandala has become a form of meditation for me, which enables me to calm my mind, slow my breathing and sink more deeply into the creative zone.  I love the calm contemplation of growing a mandala from the center to see a beautiful design emerge and creating many different types of mandala artwork in a variety of themes. The biggest inspiration for me is the connection to the natural world. Mandalas are all around us and I continue to explore the fascinating macrocosm and microcosm of our universe to discover an endless supply of mandala inspiration at every turn.
