In the words of the late Jerry Garcia....."Too much of everything is just enough." At times, while hand coloring this mandala I thought I went too far...too much line, too much color....and then when it was all said and done....I liked it. It's got that over the top craziness that just makes me feel perfectly fine. It will give someone plenty to look at during meditation time. :-)

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!
