Laural Virtues Wauters’ mesmerizing artwork explores the meditative art of the mandala. Creating a mandala is a form of active meditation that quiets your mind and allows you to journey within making the invisible visible.
Laural was born in Frankfurt, Germany and grew up in Algoma. She has written about her epic adventure of self-discovery and revelation in her new book, Tree Oracle: The True Story of Carmen Sylvia, which is available at Door to Door Books in Algoma.
Laural’s current series of artwork are colorful representations of the seven Chakras, as well as mandalas that she has visualized and created. For more information about her artwork, visit Laural’s website at www.mandalashaman.com or stop by The Eclipse Gallery at 507 4th St. (Hwy 42) in downtown Algoma.
