Zentangle, a mindful way of drawing, is a fun and easy way to deal with stress, reduce anxiety and create a sense of calm by creating beautiful patterns using simple strokes. it’s accessible to everyone, young and old.

On this website, I’ll teach you all you need to know about this beautiful artform. Whether you’re a complete beginner or you’re already an artist you, too, can fall in love with Zentangle.


I offer lessons in person and online. I hope to see you at one. 

Fun facts about me

Glasgow-girl at heart

I am a Glasgow-girl born and bred. I moved away to Dundee and lived there for the best part of two decades but moving back to Glasgow was always inevitable for me. I grew up in Newton Mearns but now live in a village called Neilston on the southside of the city with my husband Bob and our gorgeous, funny, four-year-old daughter Isla.

I speak a bit of Spanish

At school, I won the McNiven prize for German. Now I only remember the most basic of German. I do, however, speak a small amount of Spanish, and can understand Spanish series to some extent. My favourite Spanish show is Velvet about a fashion store set in 50s Madrid.


20 years as a journalist

I was a journalist for the best part of two decades, starting out as a sub-editor and finishing my journalism career in The People’s Friend as a magazine journalist. Apart from being a Zentangle teacher, I am also a virtual assistant, specialising in content creation. I am the Membership Manager for East Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce.

I have a small tattoo on my right hip of a butterfly.

I’m a published author. Well, it’s only of two short stories in a newspaper, but still…

I once starred in a short film, even saying a couple of lines… then I missed it when it was on telly! 

Scottish and proud

I’m Scottish and proud. I’m not the only Scottish CZT but I’m the only CZT in Glasgow. My Scottish heritage is something you’ll see me make reference to from time to time in my social media, whether it’s the odd touch of tartan or Scottish music playing in my social-media posts.


I love Jane Austen

I love reading and often have more than two books on the go at the same time. I always have a stack of books on my bedside table. My favourite authors are quite varied and include Jane Austen, Stephen King and Peter James.

My creativity runs deep

It was no surprise that I became a Zentangle teacher as I’ve always been a very creative person. My hobbies over the years have included everything from calligraphy to crochet to Spirograph and Neurographica. It’s with Zentangle that my heart truly lies, though.
