It’s a stop motion video featuring colorful tangled beetles that she creates during her Zentangle workshops. In the video she tangles her tile and a beetle...

Zentangle untangled: An Inspiring Book for Meditative Drawing

I have so many friends now through this wonderful world called Zentangle. One such friend who crossed my path is Kass Hall. Kass is an accomplished mixed-media artist from Down Under. Although we’ve never met face-to-face, we’ve known each other now for nearly two years. I was thrilled when I read she was coming to the United States to become a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT). Zentangle untangled by Certified Zentangle...

Zentangle at Energy, Light and Information Center

I am thrilled to be teaching again at the Energy, Light and Information Center in Springtown, Texas. On Saturday, July 14, from 10am to about 12:30pm, I will be holding a Zentangle Basics workshop. What is Zentangle? I get asked all the time. In its purist form it is a focused meditation. Its premise is simple in that it is a relaxed focus aspect of meditation. Not to sound redundant, Zentangle is indeed “an easy to learn and...

DIVA Weekly Zentangle Challenge 45

I finally did it. I made the commitment to participate in this week’s challenge. After all, a new “official” tangle just came out, so what better time than now to give it a whirl. It’s actually two tangles in one: Chainging and Punzel. Chainging is the basis for Punzel, which in the words of Rick Roberts, is a tangleation of the former. This is a fun tangle that requires a little more concentration. Totally...

New Zentangle Series at the Doss Heritage and Culture Center

No previous art training or artistic ability required! For people who are convinced they can’t draw, Zentangle removes that barrier. Zentangle’s method also removes any intimidation of facing a blank sheet of paper. With Zentangle, a novice’s work can be put next to a “pro’s” work and fit right in. Within its “elegance of limits” Zentangle draws from a rich well of our human...

Gratitude and Zentangle

Zentangle in Cala at Fort Worth Japanese Festival I became a Certified Zentangle (CZT) Teacher in May 2010. My journey since then has been nothing less than amazing to me. I recently volunteered in a booth for the Texas Lettering Arts Council featuring Zentangle at one of the Great American Scrapbook Convention venues. I relayed my story to one of my co-volunteers. She seemed to hang on every word, then shared with me her observation:...

Keenees: A New Tangle

I honestly cannot remember what inspired me to create this tangle. I do know it was not an “itsy-bitsy teeny tiny polka-dot bikini.” However, as development progressed, low and behold, the name became clear and here I introduce Keenees—which has indeed provided that itsy-bitsy teeny tiny polka-dot bikini inspiration. It’s a fun and playful tangle. It can be used as a filler, a border, or wherever you choose. And, it...

A Tangleation

A new word recently coined is Tangleation. Simply put, “tangleation (tan-gle-a-tion), noun. A noticeable variation of an existing tangle.; inspired variations that are noticeably different but fundamentally same in basic approach; structurally based on the original tangle.” Great and what a wonderful segue to introduce my Kardz tangle. Kardz is based on Crescent Moon and came into being about a year ago. It is one of my...
