Made with a dear friend in mind, God bless his heart. I am so much more motivated to design and color when there is a cause. The only problem is, that sometimes when it's for someone I tend to get in my "other" brain and I start thinking too much instead of letting color schemes and choices come freely. As was the case with this one. I actually made two, simultaneously because I wasn't sure about colors. I should have listened to my daughter...who always liked this one. Well, I have a very sunny red, orange and yellow one as back up for something down the road. Onward and upward!

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!
