Melanie Circle is a painter, printmaker and expressive arts guide. She paints for the joy of it. For her, art-making is an exercise in mindfulness, a path to peace. She offers mandala-based painting workshops that incorporate breath, movement, poetry and sound – a reminder that whatever we do, we do with all of ourselves.
