If you can make a line, a dot and a curve -

               you can create Zentangle® art!

Zentangle is an easy to learn and relaxing method of creating beautiful images from structured patterns.  No drawing experience is necessary.

As a Certified Zentangle Teachertm, I enjoy showing students how to combine simple patterns to create complex art.

Along with the satisfaction of creating an artwork, I find that using the Zentangle method brings me feelings of clarity and calm.

My teaching style draws on my prior experiences working as an international photojournalist and teaching at American International College, along with insights gained from my Masters of Education in Arts Education.

"I liked the atmosphere and the direction, but also the freedom to do things a little differently."
"I love that I took the class with my daughter and my best friend - some 40 years between their ages - and it didn't matter."
