More recently, Parr has been exploring mandalas - as both a graphic format and a spiritual journey. To her, these pieces create an opportunity to connect in a new way. For example, in painting a mandala on the wall of her own studio, Parr initially enlisted the help of friends; and so it became a piece about friendship, home and family. When she designed and painted a bee-themed mandala for a client, he helped her paint it on his farm - enriching his experience of the piece and making it his own. So these mandalas become more of a community creation, bringing friends and family together.
Creating mandalas has evolved naturally out of Parr's long history with designing graphic elements for corporate clients. See her graphic illustration and design for some examples.
