In November 2011, three years after I left the practice of law to live more creatively, an acquaintance introduced me to z e n t a n g l e ®. Zentangle gave me a method by which I was able to take my love of pattern and express it in an organized way. Simply put, it gave me permission to say: I AM an Artist. I became a certified Zentangle teacher in August 2012.
What I love about the z e n t a n g l e method is its inherent freedom. z e n t a n g l e has shown me how to look at a seemingly complex pattern, deconstruct it into its essential components and recreate it freehand, using pen and paper. In z e n t a n g l e there is no erasing, there are no mistakes. This non-critical, let’s-see-what-happens-next way of drawing allows me to practice sidelining the analytical, judgmental attorney side of me and gives my artist permission to explore and discover new ways of doing things in the world. It is a mind-set I seek to create in every moment, not just when I put pen to paper.
