About

Mindful Mandala Art & More

Jill is a self-taught mandala artist and jewelry maker from Edmonton, Alberta. The intention behind Jill’s art comes from the intersection of beauty, imperfection, wellness, and unwellness, going beyond aesthetics alone. Each one-of-a-kind piece provides a gentle reminder to slow down, embrace wholeness, and find balance. 

Meaning of the Mandala

The mandala is continuous, repetitive, and symmetrical in its fundamental design.

 

In reality, the hand-painted mandala is filled with imperfection. A single dot can be significantly flawed, yet the whole mandala is calculated and seemingly perfect.

In this sense, the moral of the mandala is simple: the individual is closest to perfection when all parts of themselves are united and understood together. Further, the human population is most perfect when all beings are accepted in connection; creating a beautiful whole comprised of billions of individual differences.

Otherwise, all of you is needed, and you are all needed to create a perfect whole.
