Zwier Digital Arts Mandalas are Fascinating and Inspiring




Maureen Zwier’s art is a personal journey to discover the deepest essence within the natural world. A former microbiologist, she traded her microscope for a camera and then turned to digital art when she found there was so much more to her subjects than could be captured by a lens. Her latest work focuses on creating mandalas from images of people, pets and nature. Individuals can even commission their own custom mandala. A mandala in the home can be a wonderful complement to any interior design, providing a vibrant accent and conversation starter.

         The word mandala is Sanskrit for circle—inspiring the circular design of her work—and also translates as essence. Each mandala Zwier creates is a digital transformation of a photograph into a new, abstract work of art, representing one or more aspects of the subject that are subtle or surprising through repeating patterns, geometries and colors. The overall pattern is bordered by a circle, allowing the eye to absorb the subtle colors, shapes and textures revealed from the outside in.

         Zwier will be presenting her mandalas at numerous art fairs in the Chicago area this year, as well as Downtown Naples, Florida, Festival of the Arts on March 18.
