This is me, Jessica. I'm a busy professional by day, but also a mom, artist, fierce friend, CZT and craftaholic. Not necessarily in that order. I laugh a lot and find whimsy in the ordinary. Totally.

    MY ART

    A mixed media explorer, I use pens, paper, gelli prints, collage, glue, glitter, baubles, paint, inks, clay, canvas, crayons, beads, trinkets -- sometimes alone but often pieced together -- to create fun works of art.


    I had never been an artist but have always been crafty. So several years ago when I happened upon a Zentangle class at a local art supply store I was intrigued. Me, an artist? A Martha Stewart wanna-be was more appropriate than artist at the time. Well, I took the class and immediately signed up for another. And another. And then another! I was simply hooked on this easy to learn, simple, intuitive, stunning art form and the Zentangle Method.


    As my "inner artist" grew more confident through tangling it also craved more opportunities. Multiple mixed media, gelli plate and collage classes followed along with some attempts at traditional painting, clay and assemblage. I took classes locally, traveled to work with artists, asked questions, followed (stalked!) some of my favorite artists on social media, read lots of books and blogs, but always came back to my first love, Zentangle. Oh, yeah. And I also worked my "real" job and raised a kid.


    Trained by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, the founders of Zentangle®, I am now certified to teach tangling and the eight step Zentangle Method®. (Yep, that's the CZT after my name -- Certified Zentangle Teacher. Woo hoo!) Attend one of my regularly scheduled classes or consider a private Zentangle party for you and your friends. It's a perfect activity for craft night, girls' night out (or in!), birthday parties, etc. Contact me to book a Zentangle party, individual lessons or corporate seminar. Classes are usually two hours long and all supplies are provided. All ages and abilities are welcome. Prices for private parties vary based on attendance, location and time.
