Mandala in greens, purple and blue....colors for a rainy October morning. Not much to say about this one, probably because I have several deadlines approaching. Or maybe I'm reluctant to write about the square in the center....caused a stir with some who think the mandala should be strictly a circle thing. Well, after about 400 or so....I just need to think outside of the circle (ha ha little play on words). I think it works, and gives a very solid and grounding quality to the whole piece. Nothing like a little controversy on a Monday morning. But seriously, I just wanted to post my latest and move on to the next design. Enjoy!

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!
