As much as I truly love to mark up a mandala with lines...I started to realize that when it comes time to color them...I was missing the joy of big solid blocks of pure color. So, even though that is still very much my style, this day I decided to leave open space to honor color. The gold really makes me happy and I feel a warm peace looking at it. I hope you enjoy it too!

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!
