Intuitive Geometry is a simple method of drawing anything using basic geometric shapes & patterns- with step by step instructions to draw them yourself using only a pencil, compass and ruler. You do not need any training in art or mathematics to use it and it can be taught to children.

Along with all kinds of other designs this Intuitive Geometry series is available in the shop as an e-book, an A4 workbook and posters

Circle Fig 1

At any point (A) draw a circle of any size. Find any point on the circumference (B) and draw a circle with the same radius (AB). Continue around drawing a circle at any new intersection (C etc.) on the circumference and you will create 6 divisions.

Circle Fig 2

Find points D & E, connect them with a straight line to divide the circle in half. Find points F & G and mark them.
You have now drawn the “Seed of Life” or Vector Equilibrium.

Circle Fig 3

Draw a circle with centre F using the same radius. Continue around on all the new intersections on the circumference to create 12 divisions. Find points H & I, draw a line through them to Find point J. Continue this all the way around.

Circle Fig 4

Mark the 12 new divisions clearly, you have created 24 divisions now.
Draw a circle for each new point using the same radius.

Circle Fig 5

You can continue this division to create 48, 96, 192, 348, 768…


“Flower of Life”

Circle Fig 6 - Flower of Life


From figure 2 continue to draw new circles on the new intersections.


This is a fundamental geometric pattern of matter, it scales to any size, like a fractal growing in octaves. Often called The “Flower of Life” and it is centered by the “Seed of Life” from Fig 2, named so because of cell division after conception. Division continues to 64 cells “Flower of Life” before they start to differentiate.
