About MandalaMaker™

It’s easy to create stunning, radially symmetrical designs with MandalaMaker™!

That’s because MandalaMaker™ places image elements relative to the center and radii of your drawing. This is unlike most drawing or painting programs which place elements based on rectangular coordinates.

MandalaMaker™ is easy and fun to use, but it is not (just) a toy. A great addition to any digital artist's toolbox, the program powerfully combines vector-based shapes with pixel-based images to create anything from crisp, sharp-edged line art to soft, ethereal images. MandalaMaker™ outputs SVG files as well as high quality JPEG or PNG images at up to 600 dpi.

MandalaMaker™ is used by designers, artists, healing professionals, schools and crafters worldwide to:

  • Draw stunning digital artworks
  • Explore how geometry and art relate
  • Create diagrams for meditation or healing
  • Author coloring books
  • Design high impact logos
  • Enhance skin art designs
  • Develop templates for wood carving, stained glass and quilting
  • Produce SVG files for use with cutters and plotters


  • Shape-based drawing - easy to learn, a lifetime to master
  • Editable layers - you can reorder, revise, remove, or revamp any shape in your drawing
  • Color Transparency - allows background shapes to show through foreground shapes, creating subtle, beautiful results
  • Gradient Fills - shade colors together for dramatic, almost three-dimensional effects
  • Export - export mandalas as SVG files or custom-sized JPEG or PNG images at up to 600 dpi
  • Transform Effect - draws a series of shapes while morphing one or more of the shape's attributes
  • Image Effects (version 3 only) - import JPEG, PNG, GIF or BMP images and apply scale, rotaion, color and tiling and other effects
  • Text Support - add signatures and text elements to your images

We know that MandalaMaker™ is the most capable tool for creating digital mandalas,
but you don't have to take our word for it.

Try out MandalaMaker™ for ten days absolutely free.
