I studied Modern Languages at the University of Cambridge but then became interested in the field of complementary therapies, where I have worked since 1981. My creative side was somewhat neglected until a few years ago, when I made a conscious decision to turn my attention to this area of my life. Magically, I happened upon these woven mandalas via a friend on the internet, and was delighted to find an outlet that is both creative and therapeutic. Coincidentally, I teach circle dances, which when viewed from above also create mandala-like patterns on the ground.
