The balance of color and design makes me happy in this mandala. So funny, because when I was done with it I was certain it wasn't even going to make it beyond my notebook. I think I feel that way about all my designs when I'm done with them. There is just so much color and detail and I stare at it for hours on end and when that last mark is made....I say, "whoooaa glad that's done," and I put it away. Upon finding it another day...even as short as the next day, I love it again. :-) I hope you do 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!
