It easy to be inspired when my studio window overlooks the coastal rainforest.
"Tree of Life" Mandala
Kristi Bridgeman.
Another from my mandala series. Some of the pieces are so intricate and embellished that they take upwards of 30 hours of working and reworking. Although my neck and hand get sore, and I need glasses now, the task is not as hard as it sounds. Like crochet or puzzles, the very nature of 'mandala making' is healthy and relaxing.
'...and the fairies were decorating for a party...'
Kristi Bridgeman

This was one of the original fairy pieces, where I experimented with sepia ink. I experimented many mediums to find one that would be most reminiscent of Arthur Rackham and the master illustratorsc of times past. The very idea of fairies required an antique etherial look... the rest is history.
