It simply had to be done. I felt the need to pare down the myriad of running lines through the mandala and focus on one direct, in your face, flower. She is one proud sunflower. Happy Spring! I'm sure somewhere...little sunflower seeds are sprouting in a paper cup in someone's house, a greenhouse near by...certainly not in the ground of Northwestern, NJ as we still have snow...but somewhere a seed is sprouting and getting ready for it's debut in August!

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!
