Here's another mandala in the folksy Pennsylvania Dutch genre. I'm not sure what it is that attracts me to this design, but I am definitely attracted. I think it's the simplicity of forms and the open, light and airy composition that appeals to me. The "strawberry" hearts give it that homey hex sign kind of feel that resonates in some basic way with my soul.

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!
