Salted Pink Studio is home to Jessica, an artist who is passionate about all things pink and enjoys good food, great friends, studio time, her family and just about anything glittered, sparkled or salted. Welcome!
I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher® (CZT) and Mixed Media Explorer based in Maryland. Long before Zentangle entered the scene, I crafted a career in higher education where you will find me most weekdays. You could call me an artist, career-minded individual, fierce friend, and craftaholic -- not necessarily in that order!
Zentangle is an easy-to-learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. I became a CZT in 2015 and thoroughly enjoy sharing and teaching this art form. Almost anyone can use it to create stunning, non-representational art. It increases focus and creativity, provides artistic satisfaction along with an increased sense of personal well-being. The Zentangle Method is enjoyed all over the world, across a wide range of skills, interests and ages, and has become a metaphor for deliberate artistry in life.
Trained by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, the founders of Zentangle, I am certified to teach tangling and the eight step Zentangle Method. I teach at The Queen's Ink in Savage, MD and also offer private classes, corporate seminars, and home parties. It's a perfect activity for craft night, girls' night out (or in), birthday parties, etc. Classes usually last two hours, all supplies are provided, all ages and abilities are welcome.

Happy Mail MOnday
During the coronacation* of 2020 I instituted Happy Mail Monday via my Facebook page. This effort to send smiles across the miles and keep us connected is free to participate, and emulation is encouraged. We need all the smiles we can get these days!
Every Monday, I'll be giving away something. It might be original art, handmade cards, art supplies, a video lesson, or something I find around the house that is easy to mail. No strings, no fees, no frowns ... just me sending a smile via Happy Mail.
Watch the Salted Pink Studio's Facebook page every Monday for the giveaway. (Scroll down just a bit more to find the link.) Feel free to share some Happy Mail of your own, too! It's an incredible feeling to receive something in the mail that's not a bill or advertisement.
*Because, seriously, what else does one call it?!?
