Botanical Mandalas

Inspired by nature, these botanical mandalas celebrate the beauty and universal patterns in flowers, buds, fauna and lots more. These are preliminary sketches for more detailed paintings I am currently working on as part of the Botanical Mandalas Book Project!

Book Project!

I am working on a new art instruction book {publishing Spring 2018} and am creating over 100 Botanical Mandalas. These will be created in various ways – with nature itself, handpainted and digitally (from my nature sketches). Many different tutorials will be selected for the book for each season! There will also be an online companion class with video tutorials on all the book projects to dive deeper. The online class will also include tutorials of all the botanical mandalas that do not make it into the final book. EXCITED! 

This page shows just a few of my previously created Botanical Mandalas. For work in progress on the project, click the button below.

Digitally Created Botanical Mandalas

I love to carefully construct digital mandalas using my nature sketches and motif paintings. Here are just a few I have created inspired by my travels to Bali, being by the beach and also in my mums garden.
