Artist Elspeth McLean transforms ordinary stones into hypnotizing works of art. Equipped with a detail brush and varicolored paints, the artist meticulously crafts handheld mandalas using a pointillism-like style she prefers to call Dotillism. This self-proclaimed technique allows the artist to create vibrant mandalas with an energetic yet meditative effect, accomplished through color and repetition.
McLean’s portfolio on Instagram reveals how Mother Nature plays a vital role in her art, serving as her muse and canvas. “Creating is a way for me to express the colours of my soul,” McLean says on Etsy. “A way to share my experience of the world.” Ultimately, the passionate painter hopes to inspire others with her mesmerizing artwork.
