Sketchbook Sunday: Red and green mandala

I’m really into these mandalas. They are so relaxing to create. Well, they are relaxing now that I’ve given up on trying to make them like the perfect ones that are created using math, rulers and compasses. I love and envy those, but I don’t seem to have the patience to create them. So I’ve developed my own approach using folded coffee filters and Sharpie markers. The possibilities are endlesss and it is always a nice surprise to open up the fold to see what I’ve designed.

What are you working on today? Leave a comment and a link to your blog. I would love to see.

I have been painting and drawing since childhood. I paint mainly acrylic works in a traditional style that is sometimes representative and other times impressionistic. I love bold, bright colors, but also explore softer tones in my work. Often I incorporate African design in paintings or play with symbols to create a personal language. I also design and make beaded jewelry and create greeting cards that are works of art that can be framed. My work has been exhibited in the Boston area, and I have been featured on HGTV’s “That’s Clever!’’ making handmade cards.
