Maureen Frank - Mandala Art, Mixed Media
The Mandala Lady

A trip to Egypt in 1999 inspi
red me to create mandala art. Through much of that area of the world, due to Isla mic influences, patterns and symmetry were everywhere (hotel lobby floors, sides of buildings, church/mosque and museum walls, and ancient ruins to name a view). My analytical mind loved the geometry of the art and hieroglyphics o f the region. When I returned, I began seeing patterns and symmetry in everything aro und me and proceeded to translate the ideas that intrigued me into mandala art.

In the last two years I've expanded into asymmetrical mandala art and "happenings" paintings, which are spontaneous poured ink/watercolor paintings.

I paint with colored pencils, watercolors, watercolor pencils, watercolor crayons, acrylics, ink and gauche.
