More about Me.

I am an Artist, Librarian, founder of Inkidoodles, inked drawings of children with a name inked into the body of the drawing.  
I love teaching, quilting, drawing, and Zentangle®.  In October of 2010 I attended Zentangle® Certification in Whitinsville MA at the home of, the highlight of my art and teaching career.  I am a CZT#4,  I teach classes every week on Tuesdays at 1:00pm at the Uintah County Library.  I am available for lectures/workshops on this art form and how it can change your life.  I like to call it Brain Yoga; even if you say I have no Artistic Talent you can do Zentangle.   Take a class and see what I mean.

  1. I love everything you do!! Your work is lyrical and so beautiful. I also want to thank you for being so gracious in your generosity in sharing so much of yourself and your work.

  2. All I can say is .... Brilliant. I have learnt a new trick tonight watching your YouTube video, shading. Thank you for sharing .....

  3. Melinda. I have been following your you tube. Videos since I discovered Zentangle June of 2016. I have learned so much from you as well as others, but you are my first and my favorite. I'm in many Zentangle groups on Facebook and learning a lot of different techniques and new tangles. My question to you is, how does one become a certified Zentangle teacher? Do you apprentice first and then become a teacher. I've looked into the training seminars, but they are very expensive to attend and many miles away. I'm very interested i doing this. Any advice?
