When somebody creates a mandala it becomes a window for exploring the inner self and symbolizes a state of mind that you would like to achieve. Using natural elements, with this photo-based work I delve into a practice that connects me, and the viewer, more deeply to our inner selves and our place in the natural world. I like the mandalas I create to be slightly incomplete or imperfect. It seems to allow for entrance.
