Zentangle® Artwork

tangle and watercolor image.jpg

I have loved art as long as I can remember. As a child, I would spend hours drawing, coloring and exploring art projects. After earning my degree in Graphic Design, I worked as a Graphic Designer in the corporate world, in addition to teaching computer graphics in the community college arena, but found that I missed doing hands-on art.

I then discovered the Zentangle® art method, became certified as a CZT and resumed my teaching career. My art journey led me to the world of colored pencil art and I instantly fell in love with this new medium. I live in Raleigh, NC with my husband, Greg and our cat Annie.

I offer classes online and in person in my studio in Raleigh.
