Mandala Art

The very nature of creating a mandala is therapeutic and symbolic. The shapes and colors you create in your mandala art therapy will reflect your inner self at the time of creation. Your instinct and feeling should inspire and guide you through the process of creation. Ultimately, you will be creating a portrait of yourself as you are when creating the mandala. So, whatever you are feeling at that time, whatever emotions are coming through, will be represented in your mandala art therapy.

As with most art therapy, it’s not about the final product…it’s about the journey. When you reach your destination, you will have a representation of something meaningful and personal…a snapshot of you for a brief moment in time expressed through your mandala.

Words from the Artist - I love to make holistic art in tune with the Earth. This helps to create a home environment of warmth and harmony. I create stunning window mandalas and simple inspirational signs to influence mood and motivation.

Create Your Own Art - Buy some watercolor pencils and watercolor paper, trace a circle and use your intuition and emotions to fill in the circle. Then use a paintbrush and water and go over your drawing to bring it to life! Use this as a meditative process for wholistic healing especially during times of stress or life transition.

See how your circles change with your mood and feel the centering effect of working with the inner circle of your soul.
