Title: Peaceful travels 2022

Artist statement

A mandala appears complex, but it is simply made one piece at a time. A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Many walk and wheel along the Deception Bay foreshore path; seeking to escape and longing to connect with something other than lifeless manmade greyscapes.

This mandala is an offering, encouraging travellers to open their eyes and look within. To take a deep breath and be present with and observe the surroundings. To reconnect with the heart. A visualisation of ancient wisdom’s guidance; a manifestation of colour and pattern to bring about joy. And with joy comes peace. Wishing you all peaceful travels.
