MANDALAVISTA is a family art project. I started painting in 2020 June. As the pandemic got stronger and stronger at that time, the feeling that I would like to create something unique from nothing just got terribly important for me. My husband is the biggest supporter and inspiration for me and we do almost everything together.
I am also a graphic designer, I love colours and digital art but I wanted to be more flexible and create something tangible. By that time dot art just came across online and in short time I became well-known in social media. People started to follow me and admire my style of artwork. I have also invented some unique shapes and dot art techniques which I am currently teaching on different online workshops.
This is for supporting the art creator.
My favourite working surfaces are the canvas and wooden boards but I recently started to paint on mandala stones as well. My medium is mainly acrylic paint and I always put a glossy varnish to protect the surface of my artwork. Each of the mandalas is 100% hand-painted by me. All my artwork is uniquely inspired by a spiritual and meditative feeling which develops as I create each mandala from the center outwards.
My dotting journey started approx a year ago in 2020 June. I saw a painting on Pinterest and I loved it for at first sight. I wanted to try the technique, so I got the basic tools from my parents as a gift. Now I know, they gave me much more than just a hobby but my life back! The biggest supporter and motivator in my life is my husband. We do MANDALAVISTA together as a family art project. For example I started organising workshops because of him. He believed in my success so deeply in his heart that I could not even question it! I always try to remind myself that the most important thing in life is being happy all the time. This is exactly what I got from dotting!
The only advice that I usually give to my students is that not to compare ourselves to each other. Everybody has their own path and rhythm, so just don’t forget to enjoy the road! You should improve your skill every single day and keep in your mind – being present is a requirement!
