Ocean Breath


Just as the body breathes, the rhythm of the heart beats, and the subtle energies of Nature flows, so, too, does the Ocean breathe. The tides flow in and out, the ocean swells and calms, all as a part of the energy of life. This healing mandala is painted with acrylic on canvas and is embellished with 3-dimensional paint and Swarovski crystals.


The Mandala is found in all cultures and essentially all religions. The word “Mandala” means “Sacred Circle.” It is that which connects the inner part of us to the greater existence that is around us. They are used for meditation, healing and general peace. “When I paint the Mandala I am in a ‘state of Love’ which is a very nice place to be.” Uma Joy

In addition to the originals available and noted on the shop page, most of the paintings can be ordered as an embellished giclée (“gee-clay”). Technically, a giclée is a print.  I use the term to mean a print on canvas.   When I make a giclée, I take the print and add 3-dimensional paint, gold leafing (when shown on the original) and/or Swarovski crystals – making the giclée half-way between an original and a print. Thus, you may notice a difference in pricing on the giclées — the more detailed the original is – the more involved the embellishment becomes.
