This design is actually the same as the previous post but with a different color palette. I started with this one, and thought it was too much color so I abandoned it. Then I started the other one with a more traditional analagous color scheme and I liked it. But my daughter saw this one half finished and fell in love with it....so then I liked it again and finished it. And so it goes. I worked this way in college too and could often be seen working on two designs for the same project. Isn't art just so much fun? Unlike math, with one answer...the creative solutions are infinite...as it should be.

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!
