Hidden Treasures

Logo button for Karen Casey Smith
Karen Casey Smith's work with mandalas started in 1995. She started with colored pencils but now primarily uses flower photography to create the most extraordinary pieces of art. Her interest in mandalas combine two of her great interests, that of creating art and healing. She says, "it is always an amazing experience, and a delightful surprise to see the patterns that emerge while making the flower mandalas. Each mandala has its own vibrational frequency. They bring in healing energy where they are displayed."

I hope you enjoy Karen's unique talent as much as I have. Visit her shop at Etsy or 1000 Markets to see all of her mandalas as well as a variety of other outstanding photography.

The Hidden Treasures flower mandala was created from a photo of a beautiful yellow lily.
