Welcome to my Meditative Arts Blog. I will post Zentangles and Zentangle discussions here, both mine and those from classes I teach. From 2017 through 2020, I posted everything to my blog at https://blogspot.meditativearts.com
I have been doing art work since the 1970s and have been practicing Vipassana meditation since the early 1990s. I love working in the areas where meditation and art intersect.
I live with my husband in Auburn, CA, where I am semi-retired from a small Web Design Business. I teach meditation, paint, and make Zentangles. I also write. My two books are on Amazon. Loss of Deliverance is a coming of age story about a woman who gets caught up in the seventies drug trade and how she finds her way out. Stitching a Life is an immigration story based on the life of my grandmother, Helen Fein, who came to New York in 1900 from Lithuania.
I discovered Zentangle in 2014 and have been captivated since. It all started when I saw a Zentangle class in the adult ed catalogue of our local community college. I had no idea what the word Zentangle even meant, but it sounded like art, and it had the word “Zen.” How could I go wrong? I got online and bought the Zentangle Kit, and I have never looked back. I did attend that local class, taught by Cheryl Wilson, CZT. She and I are now long-time friends. She has been a wonderful teacher and mentor. See her beautiful work here.
I took the Certified Zentangle Teacher Training Seminar from Rick and Maria in Rhode Island, and became a CZT. I’ve been teaching classes since then, and enjoying it very much. I hope you enjoy this blog.
