Of all the instruction for mandalas I have seen, this inspired and guided me to understand the process and create beautiful mandalas of my own. Brilliant class.
In depth but very simple and straightforward explanations. Really good groundwork to starting your own mandala designs. Thank you for the class!

I am a pen and ink junkie with possibly too large a collection of pens :)  I find there is nothing like the relaxing sensation of a pencil gliding across the paper and the exhilarating sensation of the ink making your work come to life. I love exploring all mediums and am always trying to push the boundaries in new methods of design, but no matter what, I always come back to pencil and paper and my big box o' pens. :)
