I love learning, sharing, ocean swimming, surfing (the Net). I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher. In 2014 I completed a Bachelor of Arts, Curtin University. I have a passion for the creative arts. I Live in Sydney, Australia
The first class for the year will be on “Borders”. I’ve had several requests for this class and thought that the new year is a great time to explore this theme. Other requests have been for journals, so I’m combining both themes with a very relaxed start to the year. If you have a journal, 2019 diary or notebook and would like to decorate some pages with borders, then bring it along. If you don’t have a journal, come along and decorate some tiles instead. It is up to you!
If you need any encouragement or motivation to start a journal visit UNESCO SIX exhibition at the State Library of New South Wales. This is an amazing collection of First Fleet Journals, WWI Diaries and notebooks. I visited there today. You can read more about this on the State Library website.
To book into the class, go to the bookings page and fill out the form. Looking forward to seeing you!
Happy New Year! Wow 2019 already. Last year was an amazing year. I gave plenty of Zentangle Classes and met absolutely wonderful people along the way. I am so grateful to Rick and Maria for creating, growing and nurturing the Zentangle community.
I have the schedule for Zentangle Classes on the Workshops page. Have a browse through and book into a class.
Many of you already know that I am planning a trip to visit the founders of Zentangle Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts in Providence, Rhode Island, in November. They are holding an event ZenAgain which is for Certified Zentangle Teachers to get together and learn new techniqes for their classes. I’m really looking forward to sharing with you all what I learn. So I’ve scheduled two Advanced Classes in November. For the dates go to the Workshops page.
I will be leaving at the end of October this year and will keep you posted on my trip.
*** UPDATE *** An additional class has been scheduled starting 2 June 2018 too!
Come along on a 6 week journey of creativity and relaxation. Each week you will learn new techniques and tangles (patterns) using the Zentangle Method. This class is suitable for complete beginners and for those with more experience.
Everyone enjoyed the last class which ended with meeting up for a lovely lunch on the last day. Lots of fun and new friendships were made.

A great way to develop our art practice is to continually research and investigate other artists’ works. Google Arts & Culture is an art project by Google which has given access to amazing artworks and art institutes and galleries around the globe. Many of the images have been captured in ultra-high resolution measured in gigapixels. This means that you can zoom into these paintings and view the actual brush strokes of the artist. It is well worth a look.
