How I Create

Once I know what I want to draw, my first step to any piece is mapping out the design on paper in pencil. I typically use Strathmore Mixed Media or Strathmore Marker paper.

Next, I use a compass to begin drawing any mandalas I’m including in the design. My favorite compass is by Staedtler and can be found here. I add detailing to the mandalas with either Sakura Pigma Micron Pens or Copic fineliner pens. 

Finally, I add color with my Prismacolor colored-pencil set or Copic Sketch markers. My favorite part of creating a new piece is deciding which colors I’ll use and seeing the piece come to life!
