The Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York coordinates programs to provide nourishing meals at home for over 7,000 children, ages 5-18, living in food-insecure households, meaning they don’t consistently have access to enough nutritionally adequate food. Purchasing a Nourish product supports opportunities for the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York to serve even more kids!!
“Each mandala design is drawn by me. The mandalas are drawn in ink, and like life, they are not necessarily perfect. I don’t use stencils or sketch out designs in advance, but rather let the patterns develop as I draw. There’s no erasing; no correcting -- just transforming lines into patterns and patterns into mandalas. And ultimately mandalas into meals to help kids who don’t have consistent access to food.
My mandalas are often inspired by patterns in nature. When you start looking for patterns, you realize they are all around us. You can find creative inspiration in some of the most ordinary, common-place items. The more you look for patterns, the more you appreciate the beauty in details that fill our world.”
