Hi, My Name is Liona and I am a self-taught Dot-Master.

I have been creating and selling mandala art and related articles for the last 3 years, and in total I have been living off my painting art for the last 20 years (since 1999). 

I got into mandala painting by chance when I was preparing hand-made gifts for my vocal students and searched for a way to create those presents. 

Since I only painted at night at first, I immediately noticed that my sleep has improved as I was falling in to it easily and peacefully. 

Later, when I made mandala-dotting part of my daily routine I could see how it helped me relax and center.

At first I was just counting dots, it came as a natural habit that originated of the need to assure symmetry while painting. 

Soon I realized I was thinking of absolutely nothing while dotting- my mind was quiet for long minutes. It became my only meditation habit (oh, I’m such a restless person I could never sit and meditate like everyone else). 

Later I began listening to music, guided meditations and affirmations while painting and soon I noticed how my whole life was changing- I felt more centered, calm, and able to better handle life’s hassle and challenges. Today I can actually sit down and meditate like the rest of the people... what a joy!

While perfectioning my particular technique and precision I focus my learnings on a wide range of beneficial aspects mandala dotting has to offer.

Cara Leto (Australia)

I just wanted to say how much I'm blown away by your course and I'm so glad that I'm doing it. The detail and the pace you go at is perfect for me. I have done a bit of dotting in the past and didn't like the result. I see now where the problems lie. I am grateful for your generosity in sharing all this information... ... I am very happy with the option to send you questions and to catch up on the recorded session. Your gentle speaking voice is very easy to follow. Again thank you for the wonderful course🙏

Leone Lamb (New Zealand)

Thank you thank you thank you Liona, I am so appreciative of you for sharing all your knowledge with us, I can’t thank you enough. I have a totally new appreciation for using a brush (instead of tools) and an amazing reversal on my feelings using “tube paints” now. I gave up trying to use the tube paints - not knowing about mixing, liquidity etc but my mind has been totally changed forever and I have you to thank for that. I’m now feeling way more confident than I have been - thanks to you. So this is a heartfelt thank you. Sending love and best wishes 💕

Victoria K Schmidt (Montana, USA)

Darling Liona,

Each time I work on one of your practice sheets I feel overwhelmed with gratitude toward you.

Your encouraging and soothing voice, and the lovely background music are additional treats.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Art is Love❤️
