 Don’t you just love it when you come across something that captures your attention so deeply that it makes you smile from the inside out....

Zentangle helps me breath a little deeper

 visit me at

I discovered Zentangle while looking for some interesting free motion stitching techniques. I went to, copied the tangles and practiced them  "one stroke at a time"  finding it interestingly satisfying.   I immersed myself and was compelled to travel to Providence, RI for the CZT 8 certification in February, 2012 to learn more. In 2013 I attended Tangle U in North Hampton, MA & 2014 attended Tangle U 2 in Portland, Maine, to learn from amazingly experienced CZT's. I am a contributing author to the book "Joy of zentangle", and the learning just keeps on going. 

When I sit down to tangle, I get into the "zone" where time stops and I get lost in the work. The finished product looks amazing and I have such a sense of calm after working on a piece. It has sparked my artist within.

I love being a CZT ..... People are drawn to the classes for many reasons but when they leave they have in their hand and minds a mini tool kit that holds the potential to change their world…..realize the artist within, calm themselves, create handmade treasures, take mini vacations anywhere, or enjoy an activity with family or friends.

I teach zentangle classes in Calgary and  surrounding areas.
