Learn Certified Teachers Lois Stokes

Volcano, Hawai'i

Lois and Earl Stokes

My husband and I are  Artists of the Spirit who live in Volcano, on the Big Island of Hawai'i. We specialize in creating art as a moving meditation. As Certified Zentangle Teachers, we are the first to bring the art of Zentangle to the Islands. 

Drawing upon our experience with the Hawaiian healing arts, shamanism and the philosophy found on the islands called Huna, we approach art as a healing and spiritual practice. Our Whispers of Aloha can be heard around the world.

We teach the arts of Zentangle® and Hawaiian String Figures. Individual and group sessions are held in our Volcano studio and in other locations upon request.

Zentangle Inspired Art

Signature Leaves

I etch with bamboo needles on the leaves of an autograph tree that grows in Hawaii. The leaves are thick and juicy and the lines turn to gold when first drawn. The process of watching a green leaf turn brown takes about a week and is a meditation in itself. If left in water they remain green longer and if left on the tree you can watch your art grow.

I embrace this expression of art that reflects Sabi or the beauty and serenity that comes with age and the process of change.

These Zentangle patterns on leaves become my spirit friends who hold my prayerful intent.

Do you hear the call of the islands? Do you want to learn this relaxing art?

E-mail us at and we will arrange a session that will make your stay on the islands special.
