There are certain elements that naturally occur in my designs. I tried to alter those symbols in this design to keep from having a possible sameness to my mandalas. I think it worked. It's always a catch 22 with me and the hand drawn designing. While I do not care for the static look of a computer generated design, my imperfect lines bother me too. But in the end I choose my own hand over the perfect cold, lines of a computer design. Just don't look to closely!

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!
