I am a children’s book writer and author, a greeting card designer and an animal artist.
Two years ago at the age of just 44, my life was turned upside down by a near fatal stoke. I spent months learning how to walk again and still have trouble using my left hand. I returned to work but knew from day one that it wasn’t going to work. I became more and more stressed and went through months of deep depression. My memory was non-existent and I couldn’t concentrate on anything for more than 10 minutes at a time. Then I read an article about Zentangle and how its meditative qualities can help improve sleep, lower blood pressure and relax the mind. I decided I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. Within minutes of focussing on the pen strokes, my shoulders relaxed and the tension in my jaw eased. One hour later I had finished my first Zentangle and enthusiastically started another.
Zentangle has done wonders for me and I can’t wait to share it with you.
