It was over one year ago that I launched the Mandalas for Marinke project to honor the work and life of Marinke Slump from A Creative Being and to raise awareness about depression and mental health issues. As of yesterday, all of the individual submissions have been posted. A HUGE thanks to everyone who participated in this amazing collaboration of creativity. Below you will find the roundup of all of the final submissions that were posted in July. And you can see the whole year plus of submissions here. If you submitted to this project and do not see your post anywhere, please contact me (kathryn.vercillo – gmail).

Finally, there’s a post showing some mandalas that got a little mixed up in the uploading process (with my huge apologies) and whose makers aren’t clear. A few of these have been identified and the post reflects these updates. Some of these are still seeking their makers if those people want to be identified publicly!

I am currently organizing all of the work into an art book. There’s a learning curve for me with photo layout so it’s taking a little bit of time but I love the process of learning and consider it an honor to be doing this work. I am also searching for the right place to lay all of the mandalas out together to get photographs of the entire set. And I am working on submissions to art shows to get these on display. One step at a time.
