“Micron pens have been a staple of mine for over 20 years. There is ease to the release of the ink that provides a photo reproductive line, faithfully mimics my desired drawing style and dries quickly on my preferred surface of vellum.“ -Timothy Phelps
For the past 5 years, Tim has been exploring the significance of mandalas and mindfulness culminating in his current two-volume “Wonders” series of full color books of nature mandalas published by Schiffer Publishing (2016) that celebrates our earth’s biodiversity and conservancy efforts to save it. A set of nature mandala coloring books followed in 2017.
