The Intuitive Geometry method is a set of principles for using overlapping circles to create and design anything. The method was created by Nathalie Strassburg over a period of several years after she had an inspiring vision of a large geometric drawing.

Overlapping circles have been studied since ancient times. Two overlapping circles create the almond shape called the vesica pisces from which we can make basic geometric shapes. The intuitive geometry method has expanded on these basic foundations, commonly referred to as Sacred Geometry, and now includes spirals, waves and scaling. Once you master the method’s 8 principles (circle, square, triangle, hexagon, pentagon, spirals, waves, scaling) you can apply them intuitively and draw anything. The book (and e-book) contains step by step instructions, step by step examples and example art.

She is trained in art, digital design, marketing, NLP, Life Coaching and continues to expand her knowledge with new courses and reading every year. She has more than 20 years of freelance design experience specializing in branding.

Nathalie is passionate about self-realization and inner peace. She has traveled extensively, currently lives in South Africa growing a food forest, and is engaged in several new creative projects.

The original artworks and prints are for sale, and art may be commissioned. Artworks are available in 3 different sizes and are produced with color pencils and graphite on 200gsm quality paper that is acid free and age resistant. The artworks are very time intensive and take anything from 10 days to 28 days to produce. The images and line art of the original artworks are for sale on her website along with other products so that it is accessible for inspiration, wall art, teaching, coloring, and personal projects. Custom Images and Designs are also available.

The Intuitive Geometry method is a set of principles for using overlapping circles to create and design anything. The method was created by Nathalie Strassburg over a period of several years after she had an inspiring vision of a large geometric drawing. The website went live around 2019, and the book (and e-book) was published in 2021. She is currently working on a new art collection and books.

Nathalie believes Intuitive Geometry is a gift to all of us. For this reason she made it possible for anyone to learn the method for free online, so that location and income did not prevent anyone from learning it. She also makes images and line art of the original artworks available for purchase at a relatively low cost for personal use so that it is accessible for teaching and personal projects.

Circle

Overlapping seven circles with the same radius creates 6 equal divisions. You can continue this division to create 12, 24, 48, 96, 192… radial divisions. Learn the circle with step by step instructions >

Overlapping two circles with the same radius creates the first triangle. Overlapping three can create a triangle twice the size. Overlapping six circles creates various possibilities including the five regular solids: the tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, icosahedron and dodecahedron. Learn the triangle with step by step instructions >

Hexagon

Overlapping six circles with the same radius creates two different hexagons. Hexagonal tiling is efficient because it has minimal boundary lines – honeycomb is a great example of this. Learn the hexagon with step by step instructions >

Overlapping circles become the guides for creating any type of spiral. For equally spaced spirals you move one circle for every arch. For growing spirals you move double the number of circles for every new arch. You can create custom spirals to suit your designs. Learn spirals with step by step instructions >

Waves

Overlapping circles create the guides for drawing waves. Different scales of overlapping circles create infinite possibilities for custom wave designs. Waves are universal patterns of light, electricity, sound, wind etc. Learn waves with step by step instructions >

Scaling

Scaling is the secret to drawing anything with overlapping circles. The patterns of life are circles within circles and universally scale in steps: down half the size or up double in size. Learn scaling with step by step instructions >

The Intuitive Geometry method is a basic set of principles for using overlapping circles to create and design anything. Below are the step by step instructions for universal scaling.

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

Connect A & B, extend the line to find D and mark it. With centre A & radius AD draw a circle twice the size of the first one.

Find E. Connect C & E to find F. With centre A and radius AF draw a circle half the size of the first one. Draw a circle with centre F & radius FB.

Find, Mark and connect G & H. Find & mark I. Draw a circle with centre I & radius IF. You can continue this method indefinitely.

With centre A and radius AO draw a circle. With the same radius continue drawing circles on the new intersections P, Q, R, S etc. You can now draw the wave by using the smaller circles as guides. You can continue the wave indefinitely.
