I just finished coloring this mandala for my dear friend Miriam. It's her birthday tomorrow. I so want to send her the link to this blog so she can see it....but I'm waiting to surprise her on Sunday by giving her the original. Happy Birthday wonderful friend! May your personal mandala be a focal point for your peaceful meditations, or just a design on your wall symbolizing our long time friendship.

Hello, and welcome to my website. My name is Jody Cooke and I am a designer living in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I have been an artist in some form or another for over thirty years. My new passion is mandalas! Since I learned about them in January 2013, I have created over 1,500 (black and white) of these circular patterns and over 160 full color. Some are very small and sketchy, most are 8 inches in diameter, currently I am creating on 24" x 18" paper (transitioning into a Lotus Mandala series as of summer 2017) and one is a 24 inch square acrylic mandala painting on canvas. Definitely not my preferred medium..but I gave it a try!
