Welcome to my blog. I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher® and I'm having a blast teaching Zentangle® to anyone that will listen.
The Zentangle art method is not all about the art. It's a moving meditation that taps into your creative flow producing a beautiful piece of art. Each stroke of the pen gets you out of your head and into the present moment where openness and joy dwells.
Zentangle is the culmination of Maria Thomas' art background and Rick Roberts meditation background. He is the Zen and she is the Tangle. Learn more about the method at zentangle.com.

The Zentangle Beyond Basics class was really fun to teach! I ended up having only 3 students, but it made it all the more special. These ladies are the best! There were laughs, wisecracks, talking back to the teacher....it was brilliant!
Since we were a small class, the ladies had more input in what they wanted to learn. I brought out some of the tougher tangles and while some were hits, others got "boo'd" off stage!
Unfortunately, I did the unthinkable and forgot to take pictures. Stay tuned as I hope the ladies will forward pictures of their finished pieces to me so I can give credit where credit is due.
I am going to take April off to get some art finished. So stay tuned for a Basic class in May! And remember, if you want me to come to your house to teach you and your friends, just say the word and I'm there. I've been hearing rumblings about "Wine & Zentangle" and how great they go together!

I taught a wonderful group of Girl Scouts last Friday! They were so much fun! I'm just going to say it...I think Girl Scouts are the best students! These ladies asked fantastic questions and were all in the zone to learn their first tangles. Each one did a fabulous job as you can see by the picture below. I want to thank you ladies for a wonderful time and I look forward to the next time that our paths cross!
Till next time....Tangle on!

Last Saturday I held another Zentangle 101 class. As usual, everyone did a fabulous job with their tiles! I had two ladies that had never heard of Zentangle before. These ladies are hard working business owners that needed to have some fun. They saw my flyer at Starbucks and decided to throw caution to the wind. I'm so glad they did!
Below are some tiles from the day!
I also added a new design to my CafePress store: Keep Calm & Tangle on!
You can get it on t-shirts, mugs, mousepads, etc. Check it out, here.
Until next time.... Tangle on!

On Saturday I taught a Zentangle 101 Basics class and it was a lot of fun! There were 10 folks in the class and they learned 8 tangles each. We managed to complete 2 tiles and a keychain Bijou as well! I tell you, 3 hours went by awfully fast!
Below is a picture of the first tile they completed. I just love how every tile is slightly different. It just shows you how no two tiles are the same even though each person had the same instruction and had the opportunity to watch me on the screen.
I just love this gift of Zentangle!

I recently taught Zentangle to a group of Girl Scouts and I had a blast! My friend Tessa is 10 years old and she had 6 of her troop members come over to her place for an afternoon of tangling. All of the girls did a fantastic job of focusing and creating beautiful tiles. There were a couple of parents in the other room that said they were amazed that the kids stayed so quiet and focused for so long (1 1/2 hours).
The kids had a great time and all seemed to be pretty darn proud of their art work.
Here is a pic of Tessa holding her finished tile and a pic of all the tiles showing the tangles the girls learned: Hollibaugh, Crescent Moon, 'N Zeppel and Rain.
