Almost fifteen years ago, Tampa-based artist Paula Brett used mandalas as an art therapy technique for at-risk students. She fell in love with the spiritually-rooted art form after seeing Tibetan Buddhist Monks create traditional sand mandalas on the ground. 

Brett taught and lived in Moscow, Budapest and New York City before settling in Tampa with her soon-to-be husband and two children, both under three years old. It was working in her Tampa studio surrounded by leftover materials from a client’s project involving candy boxes that Brett embarked on her greatest artistic journey yet.

According to Brett, whenever she has felt in an artistic funk, she has retreated to the spiritual and artistic intricacies of the mandala. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
