Mandalas are opportunities to shift moods and open hearts, inspire and enlighten.
I would love to have the opportunity to make the unique inspirational energy of my Mandala paintings more available. However, the amount of work required to create one – with as many as eighty layers on a single oil painting – makes it unaffordable for many.
The intricate nature of these mandalas translate beautifully into fine art print reproductions. So I am asking for your support to set up a printing studio where I will be able to make limited edition prints that are much more affordable than the original painting and accessible to a wider audience.
I have created a new Mandala painting especially for this project, called Mandala of the Realms. You have the option to select between one of six pledge amounts, corresponding to different sizes of a print reproduction or giving you the opportunity to own the original Mandala painting itself.
To fully acknowledge the value of your support, the only print reproductions that will ever be made from this Mandala will be the rewards given to you, the backers of this Kickstarter project. Every print will be signed by me and numbered accordingly.
The funding goal is to raise a minimum of £15,000 to purchase the printing equipment and create your rewards.
There will also be a Stretch Goal: if we manage to raise more than £30,000 I will be able to set up a dedicated printing studio that can also be made accessible to local students and artists.

Risks and challenges
I have done my best to ensure that the production and shipping of your rewards will be a smooth process. The printing of your rewards - as well as their packaging and their shipping - will remain pretty straightforward so I don't foresee any significant setback.
Furthermore, I have just finished the Mandala of the Realms, and the printing equipment is "pre-ordered", pending the successful completion of this Kickstarter campaign.
The only significant challenge would be to handle the production and shipping of your rewards in the event of an overwhelming fundraising success. However, I could rely on additional people to help me with this, and in any case this would not cause too much delay in shipping your rewards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
