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. Powerfully combining vector-based shapes with pixel-based images, the program can create anthing from crisp, sharp-edged line art to soft, ethereal images, and it outputs SVG files as well as high quality JPEG or PNG images at up to 600 dpi.

MandalaMaker is used by healing professionals, designers, artists and craftspeople worldwide to:

  • Create stunning digital artworks
  • Draw diagrams for meditation or healing
  • Make coloring books
  • Design high impact logos
  • Produce skin art designs
  • Develop designs for wood carving, stained glass or other crafts


  • 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

MandalaMaker is the most capable tool for creating digital mandalas, but don't take our word for it.
