|Artist Statement: Janine L. Wooten|
Mandala Gallery Official Site
Any of various ritualistic geometric designs symbolic of the universe, used in Hinduism and Buddhism as an aid to meditation.
Janine has studied mathematics, karate, religions, pottery, and tai chi. She is also a mother of two wonderful sons; Chip (21), and Mark (15). She has said that it is no coincidence that her passion for painting Mandalas incorporates not only art, but also mathematics and spirituality!
Nothing is by chance here! Each of the previous interests that seemed unrelated were actually stepping stones on my path, my own labyrinth, spiraling, slowly bringing me closer to the center and to my purpose.
"It is my life, and that which is my life, I must do" -Kahlil Gibran
