Vinyl Record Mandalas, Vol. 2


After the tremendous success of the first volume of my vinyl record mandalas, I am incredibly excited to present Volume 2.


Old scratched up records end their musical journey as they become dormant and unplayable. My vinyl record mandalas pick up where the stunted life of a discarded record leaves off, imbuing them with new energy and purpose.


These acrylic paintings on vinyl are mandalas - a Sanskrit word that means ‘sacred art within a circle.’ Each vinyl record mandala is a visual meditation reflective of the time of its creation.


Music is a living transitional art form, always moving from one note to the next. In the studio, my painting parallels the ephemeral quality of music as I flow from one creation to the next. The circular form of the vinyl records and the unique grooved surface are the only constraints in this collection. Within these parameters I let myself have free improvisational reign in technique, color, style, and theme.

Wood Burning

I adore the sweet woodsy smell that the burning creates and the way my hands have learned just how much pressure is needed to create a line without overdoing it. My usual style is to let each mark inform and create the next line. I never know what is going to emerge. It’s impossible to erase a woodburned line. It’s a visceral process and it requires a certain amount of presence and focus – especially in order to avoid burning yourself!
