About the Author

I’ve always loved to draw and paint, ever since I was a kid, but I really started getting passionate about my artwork after I had a traumatic brain injury (TBI) while skateboarding. After the accident, my perception of reality began to change dramatically and I became really paranoid and scared of everything. At the time I didn’t realize I had sustained a brain injury because following the accident I couldn’t remember exactly what had happened. That’s when I turned to drawing and painting as my own form of art therapy. Over time everything changed again, but this time in a positive way. I met an amazing girl who became a sort of spiritual guide for me and I began to heal. My mom also had an enormous effect on my recovery because she knew better than to put me in a hospital when I “went crazy”. She provided a natural alternative to mainstream medicine called Homeopathy, and that made a big difference. As my perception and experience became more positive, mystical, exciting, and profound, my artwork become more colorful and abstract, with deeper blending techniques. I feel now like I was perfectly expressing some of my experiences by using these new, more intense colors and flowing shapes. I was also given two amazing books by my grandmother entitled "Man and His Symbols" by Carl Jung, and "Divine Forces" by Paul Heusenstamm and I was inspired to make my own Mandalas which I began to paint on smooth rocks. People kept asking if they could have them, so I began to sell them at seasonal art fairs at my old school, The Waldorf School of San Diego. I’ve painted something over two hundred one-of-a-kind rock Mandalas, and recently I’ve branched out a bit creating Mandala coloring books, large canvas Mandalas, as well as Mandala inspired objects, including the face of an acoustic guitar. I’ve found the power of the Mandala is Great and extremely healing for the brain and soul. Now I’m 22 years old, recovering from ACL reconstruction surgery in my knee (also from skateboarding!) painting Mandalas and teaching at a nearby art center for kids. I’m also planning on visiting Hawaii where I’m looking forward to surfing, hiking and hanging out with the girl who helped save me from the dark side of my own mind.

Format: Paperback
I was given a copy of this coloring book when recovering from an illness. At first I didn't think a coloring book with premade lines was something I would enjoy. But, after doing my first one, I was hooked, as it came out beautiful, (if I don't mind saying!) and I still felt there was plenty of room for my own creativity. I was surprised how relaxing and meditative this activity was for me. I felt very calm and centered afterwards. And, the young man's story who drew the mandalas was also quite inspirational. I'm buying a few of these to have on hand for spontaneous gift giving, as they would be great for almost any age, quite inexpensive, yet unique.

This is a fantastic coloring book. The designs are beautiful on their own but come to life with color. This is a more intricate coloring book which I love because it offers more of a challenge.

This product is amazing, the meaning behind colors and design of many different cultures will find you totally fixed on these pages. Every mandala in this book is unique and playful. As you go through and create these mandala's each will have a special meaning for you. I recommend this product highly. This product arrived separately and packaged with care.
