Book Reviews

Louise Gale is an amazing artist! I was so excited to receive my pre-ordered copy of “Mandala for the Inspired Artist” this week. It is packed with creativity, beauty and instruction. I have taken her online courses for Mandala art making and now having this book in my art library will be a constant source of inspiration.

She presents her work in an easily understood way and leads you step by step to create your own beautiful Mandala artwork, not just follow her ideas. She shows the way for you to create your own Mandalas with confidence. How I love this book! Louise is a beautiful teacher, you will definitely want to add this book to your own creative library.

I have poured over the pages and keep finding new ideas I didn’t see the first time. Job well done Louise and thank you for creating such a heartfelt work. Louise’s love for Mandala making comes through in every page. The author has truly outdone herself!

This mandala book is so wonderful. It’s full of amazing ideas and very beautifully illustrated. The different techniques and methods are very easy to understand and inspirational. I read each page very carefully about at least 3 times, it was a real pleasure to discover everything. Thank you so much Louise for sharing your talent with us. Congratulations to you and to the other authors for this gorgeous book.
