I tend to focus on things many people pass by, cracks in the sidewalk, manhole covers, brick wall, handrails. I find beauty in the color and patterns of these ordinary things. Lately I have been using some of these items to make mandalas. Many of my mandalas feature parts of the urban landscape and every day items. I use my mandalas to bring out the hidden beauty all around us. I still do some mandalas of conventionally pretty things like flowers and leaves, but my main focus is urban mandalas and industrial mandalas.
