Hi everyone, I am so excited to showcase just a handful of the gorgeous work that came out of the Mixed Media Mandala class I taught earlier in the year.

This showcase is in 3 parts and here is part 1. This journey is a beautiful progression from mandala doodles and loosening up to exploring collage/other materials and then onto the Mixed Media Mandala Masterpiece where students create a final piece of artwork to hang on their wall.


Here are some of the mandala doodles and drawings from week 1. Each student used their sketchbooks to explore the mandala form from many aspects in this week from structured to intuitive mandalas, doodles, sacred geometry, macro and lots more.


“Thank you so much again for the awesome course, I felt liberated and inspired” – Natalie Stokell

Natalie really excelled in the sacred geometry mandala lessons.


“Brilliantly written, unbelievably thorough material.” – Katie Flowers

Katie, who works alot with journaling mandalas, loved playing with paint and pens.

Natasha Devaud

“The class taught me to be a lot more free and confident about my creative abilities” – Natasha Devaud

I loved how Natasha changes the perspective and focal point of her mandalas.
