A big congratulations to Patricia Fitzgerald who was the winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Rua Red Winter Open.
Patricia fought off stiff competition and walked away with the prize for her stunning artwork after the visiting public were given the chance to vote for their favourite participating artist, this award was sponsored by the Square Shopping Centre.
The award, now in its third year saw many other entrants from around Ireland showcase their work but Patricia who is from Dublin and specialises in the ancient art form of mandala as a form of mindfulness and as a tool for healing, self-compassion and spiritual growth took home the prize and received a cash prize of €1000.
Patricia has spoken about her artwork and how;
“both the drawing of mandalas or gazing at them prior to meditation brings you deeper into the self and paradoxically connects you to the universal. Having a mandala in your home creates a calm restorative atmosphere where peace can be achieved. All of my work is created intuitively”.
If you would like to email Patricia about any of her work then you can contact her on the email provided; [email protected] or you can check out her website today to see more of her fantastic work on display.
