Michele created this book, Art In My Heart; The Power of Watercolor Mandala Making, from her original 6-week classes, where she developed her own unique way of teaching watercolor and mandalas. She makes learning to paint watercolor simple and easy. At the same time, she teaches how to have fun with the profound process of creating personal mandalas.

Full color and beautiful, this how-to book shows how to create many different mandalas and enjoy immediate results. Each chapter presents a new mandala with a “How to Get Started” section at the end of the chapter.
