I learned a new technique to make mandalas. Using a permanent metallic marker acts as a resist. You get a batik feel using this technique. I am having so much fun with it! I have been making at least one per day this week. They look fabulous and I definitely want to take them further. Even though they are made with coffee filters the paper is very durable and will take some stitch.

As a self-taught artist, I have developed a practice of experimenting with my own ideas, which seem boundless. Curiosity and research continually drive me daily. For over 20 years I have taken an explorative approach towards art making. My optimistic approach to life is represented in my art as I find beauty in even the most difficult circumstances. This beautiful, imperfect life I live is meant to be shared through my creativity, resourcefulness and curiosity. I hope to influence my audience with joy.
