Writing

Writing is my first (and forever) creative love. My earliest memory of being drawn to the written word was around the age of three (ask me about my dad's old Underwood typewriter!), and the passion continued throughout my youth and adulthood, taking shape in different forms from diaries to poetry to stories to articles and, most recently, to various online journals and blogs.

Visual Art

I fervently believe that everyone is creative in some way or another - we just need to find an outlet (or two, or three!) in which to practice and nurture our creativity. Throughout my own lifelong process of exploration and discovery I've tried a bit of everything from painting to fibre arts to jewellery making, most recently (and passionately!) focusing on Zentangle® and iPhoneography.

Zentangle® Classes

The Zentangle® Method, created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. As a CZT I am certified by Rick and Maria to teach the Zentangle® Method, and am thrilled to have the opportunity to introduce this wonderful art form to the people in my community.
