Sacred geometry by Nicole Webster Clark

Nicole Webster Clark is a gifted local artist and art teacher. Along with being a painter she also has an extensive Herbology background and is the owner of Sacred Circle Herbals which specializes in custom made herbal products. Her current series of paintings is called Kaleidoscope which consists of a meditative practice of creating sacred geometric designs painted in acrylic.


Sacred geometry involves sacred universal patterns used in the design of everything in our reality. The basic belief is that geometry and mathematical ratios, harmonics and proportion are also found in music, light, and cosmology.

It is this principle of oneness, interconnectedness, and inseparability that provides me with a continuous reminder of our relationship to the whole, a diagram to the sacred foundation of all things created. This concept is truly invigorating to me as an artist!

When designing a canvas I do so in a most meditative way and let myself be guided by intuition. Attuning myself to what emotions I want to convey through the shapes and colors is an introspective practice. Finding that some ideas can barely be contained, spilling out, while others are more difficult to grasp and take some cajoling to become a concrete concept keeps the overall process attractive and stimulating.

I combine my fascination of Sacred Geometry along with my attraction to Mandalas and Lotus Flowers.


Mandala is a spiritual and ritual symbol in Hinduism and Buddhism, representing the Universe and exhibit radial balance. The lotus flower meaning is different between cultures of ancient Egyptians, the Buddhists, and Hinduism, though in fact they share many similarities. In ancient Egypt this plant is known to be associated with rebirth. This is a consequence of it supposedly retracting into the water at the night, and emerging a fresh in the Sun the next day. Therefore the lotus came to symbolize the Sun and the creation and is also associated with death, and the famous Egyptian book of the dead is known to include spells that are able to transform a person into a lotus, thus allowing for resurrection. In Buddhism the lotus is known to be associated with purity, spiritual awakening and faithfulness.

The flower is considered pure as it is able to emerge from murky waters in the morning, and be perfectly clean. Perhaps one of the strongest associations of the lotus flower with religion is that that is observed in Hinduism. In this religion the lotus flower meaning is associated with beauty, fertility, prosperity, spirituality, and eternity.
