Welcome to Mountain Spirit Mandalas!
Where does the name come from?
The word mandala comes from the ancient Indian language of Sanskrit. Loosely translated it means circle; however, a mandala is much more than a simple shape. You see, a circle represents wholeness, and can be seen as a model for the entire organizational structure of life itself. In other words a cosmic diagram of the cycles that remind us of our relationship to the infinite, both internally and externally.
There you have it, a mandala depicts material and non-material realities, mind and body, heaven and earth, and can speak to all life’s cycles, as a circle depicts wholeness or unity. As it is, I am the Mountain Spirit, creating my own expressions of the infinite universe while rooted in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. I tend to scale many mountains, on adventures, being inspired by the intricacies weaving all life as one.
Shadow and light are my teachers as I dance to embody the wisdom inside. My visual creations are a reflection of the inner work and understanding I uncover through the excavation of my heart.
Inspiration sometimes grabs me by surprise and expands my imagination into patterns and geometry from another time…Egypt, India, the Americas…each in their own expression of life have influenced my work. Asia is soon to come and only Spirit knows the seeds of visionary expansion that have yet to take root. I have found my power in allowing my unique self-expression and creative force to flourish and be seen. I hope that what comes through me can uplift and empower you to share your gifts and love with the world too.
