Ancient teachings and quantum theory teach us that the universe is made up of vibrations consisting of light, sound and information. I believe that everything carries a unique identifying vibration, somewhat like a genetic code.

a print series of floral mandalas
The series came about in answer to two questions: "How can my work benefit the greatest number of people? and "How can visual art support the healing process?"

The mandalas are floral because initial Evidence Based Design research indicates that nature motifs have the greatest benefits for hospitial patients. Sacred Geometry overlays reveal the underlying order and balance found in nature, a source of comfort and inspiration.
Digitally printed with archival quality inks on heavy weight acid-free Hahnemuhle paper, the master printers at The Highland Studio, Cold Spring, NY and New York City's Lower East Side Printmaking Workshop are able to duplicate my gouache on watercolor paper originals almost exactly. The mandalas are available in editions of 50, with or without hand applied metal leaf accents.
