Several years ago, while recovering from cancer, I was inspired to paint mandalas using only dots.  What I came up with were unique, one of a kind designs. I have no proof that this helped in my recovery, but I did find it calming, encouraging and empowering when I most needed to be strong and positive.  Though I have always been considered creative, I never thought of myself as "an artist".  I was simply someone who played with shapes and colors. But when people began asking for my mandala paintings, I knew I had found my niche and passion. Now, I feel quite comfortable to call myself an artist.
In addition to the paintings currently for sale shown below, I most enjoy creating personalized mandalas. I have found a way to make them truly individualized by using a simple questionnaire. I combine the answers of the questionnaire into a piece of art that can make meditation or prayer more intense, more meaningful, and more powerful. I believe that holding, visualizing, or sitting with a personal mandala during meditation or prayer, while listening to music, or simply when being one with nature, will enhance, encourage, and allow the flow of healing energies.

I am happy to create your mandala, or gift mandala, in whatever shape, size, and colors you most desire.  Feel free to browse the galleries linked below my picture and find the mandala designs that most resonate with you.

A mandala, which is Sanskrit for “circle” or “discoid object,” is a geometric design that holds a great deal of symbolism in many cultures. Mandalas are believed to represent different aspects of the universe and are used as instruments of meditation and prayer.

In their most basic form, mandalas are circles contained within a square and arranged into sections that are organized around a single, central point.

A mandala is a spiritual symbol in many cultures and can be understood in different ways, externally as a visual representation of the universe, or internally, as a guide for meditation.

The belief is that by focusing on entering the mandala and proceeding toward its center, you are guided through the cosmic process of transforming the universe from one of suffering into one of joy, healing, and happiness.
