During the writing of her first book, Michele didn’t have much time to paint so she started doing smaller mandalas. Requesting help from spirit, she asked for guidance and messages which she incorporated in the mandalas as a word or words. It kept her connected to her painting and to spirit and confirmed to her that she could ask for messages and could actually get them. Most of these pieces have sacred geometry patterns over the top of the flower images representing the connection of all things and the connection to the divine.
