I began with a dream to share my experience and knowledge of mandalas and creative art expression to bring about well being and wholeness . Now after 17 years of facilitating mandala workshops and working with the creative spirit, my dream, like the circle that expands from a central dot, continues.

My life has been changed by mandalas and I have seen how this art form has a positive effect on hundreds of others.
