MARIAN MAY

Artist + Healer, UK

My two passions have drawn closer together over time, and mandala art was a perfect developmental step. The concept of wholeness, harmony and chaos held within the circle are explored and the meditative and absorbing creative process is a way of drawing out an unconscious knowing of what my spirit and body need.

When we are balanced and responsive within to our own needs and our own growth, I believe we come into harmony with nature. Similarly immersing ourselves in the harmony of nature brings us back into balance. We cannot separate ourselves from our environment, and to be healthy, must combine our Spirit self within our physical self securely grounded in a sense of belonging within the wholeness of the earth.

I am inspired by the natural beauty of my immediate environment which encompasses woodland, sea, sky, flowers and wide expanses of reedbeds and marshes.
