The word “mandala” means “circle” in Sanskrit and dates from the 4th century. The intricate patterns within are inspired by the fractals in nature and the cosmos. My manifestation mandala® prints are created with fineliner and my constellation mandalas incorporate watercolour and gem customisation.
My wood burned mandalas are created from FSC certified wood. I’m currently using solid beech that has beautiful shades and grains. Each piece is drawn & meticulously burnt by hand using a specialised craft tool. Absolutely no templates or lasers! My larger pieces are made using high-quality birch faced ply and take days of dedication to bring to life.
I am a self-taught mandala artist based in SE London. I’ve always been a creative and loved bringing joy to others through my crafts. My degree is in WIldlife Conservation so I have a great appreciation of the world around us.
I founded Rebecca Leah Designs in December 2017, creating wood burned mandalas, as well as prints and cards.
My background is in events and I always dreamed of running my own stand. This is now my reality. I’m very passionate about wellbeing, creating these pieces is a meditative experience and has a calming effect on those who view them.
