I make so many mandalas I simply call them the date in which I create them. It's an orderly way to function since mandalas are all over my studio! I have disciplined myself to make one a day. I never want to loose sight of the fact that this is my daily meditation. If a cool piece of "art" is the byproduct, well than I am doubly blessed that day. This mandala's color scheme is rather subdued compared to my natural tendency towards the brights and tropical colors. But I was trying to make a design that coordinated with my living room palette. I think it works....but I miss my saturated colors!

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!
