This design was colored in the days before Thanksgiving. So interesting to me to see the influence of cranberries! Well, that's what I see because I know what's going through my mind before fourteen family members come to gather around my table....food! Would be interesting to see how I'd color this in the middle of summer. Theoretically, I could color one mandala over and over and get a bazillion different looks. I've done it once or twice, but really the thrill is in creating new designs...for me anyhow. On to the next mandala!

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!
