Someday I am going to contact a manufacturer of umbrellas...because I think these mandalas would be stunning in a functional application as well as a decorative one. Until then, I'll keep creating them in all color-ways for all moods. Definitely feeling bold and brave today! To think in college when I was studying fabric design my friend, a painter, often said my colors were "whited out". He was right. I put white in everything because I was timid with color in my teens and early twenties....not anymore!

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!
