"Mandalas are visual reminders of universal truths: everything is connected and
everything is integral to the whole".
I am a mandala (MAHN-dah-lah) artist, teacher, facilitator and speaker whose art is seen in collections around the world. The history of the mandala is multicultural and rich, but simply put, is any symmetrical design radiating from a center, such as a flower.
Painting mandalas evolved from a fun diversion to artistic expression, to a spiritual practice, to a life's work. In addition to teaching mandala-making locally and abroad, I lead collaborative art projects for fundraisers and team-building. Seeing the beauty we can create together is inspirational to me and gives me such hope for the future. No problem is insurmountable if we work together for the good of the whole.
If you'd like to learn more about mandalas, check out my website and Facebook page - Mandala Visions - or check out my TEDxTalk, "The Beauty We Create Together."
My mandalas are also available in James Van Praagh's The Soul's Journey Lesson Cards, produced by Hay House. The 44-card deck combines James' words with my art to provide guidance and wisdom.
Blessings of Beauty,
