I was introduced to Zentangle by two people I hold very close to my heart. For me it was like being introduced to a beautiful new language. At first even though I did not know the language, I knew that it was familiar, calming, interesting, and simply wonderful. I felt compelled to learn this language … the language of Zentangle.  I began creating Zentangles and soon found myself completely engaged in this intersting new art form. Unlike many other artforms, Zentangle is about the process. There are no expectations, rather a rediscovery in learning to appreciate the “now”.  I learn something new about what Zentangle means to me every time I do one. Zentangle is something different for everyone and for some people it may be many different things.

For me, Zentangle is:
An art form, a hand exercise, an escape from reality, a pathway back to reality, an everyday practice, something to increase focus, a place where ideas come from, perfection, a mess, a smile, a gift for a friend, a gift for myself, something special, and mine.
And Zentangle can be yours too.  

I began assisting in Zentangle classes in 2004. I soon started teaching classes on my own. I have taught in many different settings including; middle schools, high schools, universities, after schools programs, non-profits, scrapbooking stores, arts councils, homes, and yoga studios. My classes have been filled with people from age 9 to 82 and ranged from professional artists to those with special needs.

I am based out central Massachusetts. Please feel free to contact me about hosting a class or if you are looking to take a class.
