Artist Statement

I am a mandala and zentangle artist based in Ames, IA. My art journey began four years ago to blow off steam after a stressful day. The repetitive patterns and concentric circles, the cornerstone of a mandala, drew me in and I was hooked. I started out drawing traditional patterns and moved on to more complex shapes and colours. Food, travel and nature are a huge part of my life and influence my artwork heavily. I work with basic tools – a sharpie, pencil and paper.

The artwork on display include prints from my Inktober collection, concentric circle designs and my foray into colour.
