Here's a FAQ from a customer to The Mandala Lady...
Customer: Do you create your own designs?
Of all the questions I'm asked, this is the one I'm asked the most. The answer is: Yes, I do.
Most of my design ideas come from patterns I see in nature, architecture, geometry, and from my dreams. I keep a sketch book by my bed so that when I wake up from a dream with a mandala design in it, I can quickly sketch it out so I'll remember it.
Here's a design that came as a simple idea (circled in green) in a dream I had recently. The pink circled area shows where I expanded and developed it further.
