This has been the most asked question in the 7 years I’ve been carving! Depending on size, it could take anywhere from six hours up to 7 or more days. Typically a 12″ x 12″ carving can take 6-8 hours whereas a 4′ x 4′ mandala can take at least 7 days working 8 hours each day.
With the exception of murals or public art projects, I don’t lay out my designs before I start carving. I simply start with a circle and move outward creating lines and shapes that are informed by what I’m feeling in the moment.
Just a little over 7 years ago, I had just moved into a beautiful four square with lots of ample wall space. As I was staring at one of the walls in the living room, imagining what could be hung there, a vision of a large carved mandala came to mind. Up until that time, I had been carving small mandala designs on multi-media bird paintings that I had been creating and thought a large carved mandala would be just the thing to set the tone for this space. I just happen to have a piece of 4′ x 4′ maple ply down in my basement and I immediately set out to carve my largest mandala yet! Just eight hours later, I emerged with my creation, hung it on the wall and as one does, shared it on my facebook page. The very next day, I had my first carved mandala commission (another 4′ x 4′) and the orders have been pouring in ever since! What started out as a home project, turned into a full-time art career and I feel extraordinarily grateful!
I would be honored if you would like to share my work online! I only ask that my work is clearly credited by linking my Facebook, Instagram or website. Thank you!
Besides email, you can find me on the following social media channels:
As much as I would like to connect with you on all channels, I simply don’t have the time or brain space to keep up with it all! My number one go to these days is Instagram as I post there most often. If you are a fan of watching the creative process unfold, I post my daily works in progress to the “stories” feature there, plus some other behind the scenes and daily life bits. My pups make a frequent appearance for which I will not apologize. 🙂
I aim to align myself with organizations I feel are making a positive impact and am always happy to donate artwork to help further the cause. I wish that I could donate to every organization that asks, but it’s just not possible. I have limited my donations to a certain number each year, I encourage you to reach out at the beginning of the year with any donation requests as I typically fill all spots early on.
Private group classes are great for corporate team building, bridal and birthday parties, family reunions, girls/guys night out or “just because” gatherings.
