Each mandala I create has a life of its own.
It begins, as many lives do,  with an intention
and the planting of a seed.

A mandala in its embryonic form, holds
the promise of what is to come.

The gestation period varies, but always

I know when transition hits…the final few pushes

that must come before a mandala's birth
always lead to...
a time of joyous celebration!

"Any Way You Slice It" came into this world
at 9:36 am on 11/14/14
(20" x 20" mixed media on canvas)

And naturally, what follows next...

is the afterbirth,
with a beauty and a purpose all its own.
