I teach Zentangle and Mixed Media classes (sometimes Zentangle mixed media classes)

This quote from comedian Bob Hope sums up the essence of Me:
“I don’t feel old. I don’t feel anything till noon. That’s when it’s time for my nap.”

Dances With Words
At the ripe age of 4 I wrote an epic tale of biblical proportions about Noah’s Ark. I chose that subject because I liked to draw animals. Since those humble beginnings, my work has been published in newspapers, magazines and anthologies. Explore samples of my work at my ARTICLES page. 

Proud member of National Federation of Press Women.

Have Tangle Will Travel
Zentangle is a form of art created one line at a time. I’m a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT®). I attended the Zentangle workshop in May 2011. Since receiving my certification, I teach classes in Detroit and a wide, wide area of suburbs, including Toledo, OH. If you’re interested in learning more, give me a call!

Goddess of the Hunt and the Moon, I am a woman of many words and warm snuggly slippers.
Part wolf, part lion — hear me roar! A proud Penn State alum. ‘Nuff said.
