I dreamt of drawing my whole life - I lacked training and confidence, and I didn’t think I could consider myself an artist.  

A few years ago I finally decided that I was going to learn to draw!

I found the ZentangleŽ drawing method, developed by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, when I was searching for online drawing programs.  The designs were so interesting and beautiful that I couldn't wait to find an instructor in my area so that I could take a class. 

After taking all the classes I could find locally, I decided to become an instructor, so that I could help others learn to draw with the ZentangleŽ method.  In November 2013 I journeyed to Rhode Island USA (the only location in North America where the certification process is offered) to become a CZT in the 13th class.



Patches Plants a Garden 

Earlier this year, while weeding my garden on a sunny afternoon, I noticed a small creature hiding among the plants in the far corner.  The little fellow with a tall hat that covered his eyes, introduced himself as Patches, the gnome. Over the course of several days, I learned how he came to be in my garden and a bit about his family. During our visits, I was able to sketch Patches, his family and some of his favorite flowers.  Those sketches led me to design a series of classes featuring gnomes. I hope you will enjoy learning about the history of gnomes and their family life from my garden in B.C.

In This Workshop Participants Will:

In this class, we will focus on drawing Patches in the garden area where he planted a few of his favorite flowers. I will provide you with stepouts to help you through the process of drawing his hat, coat and beard.
