"When you buy from an artist an actual person does a little happy dance"

I'm not sure who first said that but it's so true, I LOVE it when I sell my creations and I know someone is giving a gift or keeping it for themselves.
I’ve been through some difficult life experiences; loss and grief. Making mandalas has been my peace and meditation for 5 years. Before that time I was an abstract mixed media artist that made BIG and wonderful messes on canvas or panel. People that have followed my work might be surprised that I have gone in a more controlled creative direction but I found when life became chaotic my expression became slow, measured and intentional. When I first started drawing mandalas they were just freehand doodles for the #100daychallenge on instagram. Then I studied sacred geometry and a whole world of history and spirituality opened up. So I went to Staples and bought drafting supplies like compasses, protractors, circle templates and mechanical pencils! I read books like ‘The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life’ by Drunvalo Melchizedek and most of all just spent time drawing and drawing and drawing. I love that every mandala starts with a precise and lightly placed grid of lines and circles. I revel in the surface the grid is on and get giddy when it’s time to add colour. It’s such a gift to have creativity in my cells, I will never stop making things.
