I have been a Certified Zentangle Teacher since August 2012.
I fell in love with the art of Zentangle months before that, and found it was one of the best activities I had ever done to centre myself, and to quickly lift my mood.
I tangle daily as a form of relaxation and meditation, and for pure enjoyment!
I am also an Occupational Therapist, and have worked as an OT in a multitude of settings and provinces across Canada. From an OT perspective, I am fascinated with the therapeutic qualities of the art of Zentangle and its application in areas such as treating anxiety, attention problems,coordination and fine motor difficulties, and self-esteem.
Zentangle truly is a beautiful way of gaining skills and confidence and learning that “Anything is possible, one stroke at a time”.
I have organised and presented at numerous conferences and workshops. I love to teach, and I love, more than anything in the world, to see the light in a person’s eyes when they have learned something new!
