Use pictures taken of the existing site, building and areas as part of a transformative and creative process that includes interaction with and/or participation of others in the creation of a mandala.


I am an artist and graphic designer in Calgary, Alberta, Canada whose interest in working with the transformational mandala began taking never-before-seen forms in 2000. Having worked with traditional art materials to create mandalas, I instead was inspired to use late autumn leaves I had collected. This later evolved to include figure and animal images. As a graduate of ACAD’s Visual Communications program, I continue to also work as a freelance graphic designer.
