I'm so glad to have discovered Zentangle. We adults are so concerned with doing things 'right'.  I love that Zentangle reconnects me with the uninhibited joy I felt as a child while creating art. And Nancy is such a kind and encouraging teacher. Thanks again!


Nancy is a fantastic Zentangle teacher. She brings a natural teaching talent to all her classes that makes it relaxing, enjoyable and creative! I leave Nancy's classes feeling refreshed and relaxed! 


Thank you for helping to free my inner artist!


Nancy is a calming and positive teacher who encourages everyone to believe in their own creativity. She has the ability to teach children and adults in a loving way that is accepting of everyone, even my active granddaughter. I am always happy when I take her classes or join in her Zentangle group. I recommend her to all my friends looking for a new creative outlet.


I have absolutely zero natural creativity. I had the best time taking Nancy's Zentangle class.  She makes it easy and fun and not only is it extremely calming . . . you end up with some really beautiful art!  Thank you Nancy!


Nancy is fantastic teacher, well organized, inspirational, and fun to learn from! Practicing traditional Zentangle and Zentangle inspired art, has tremendously improved my free motion quilting. Thank you Nancy, for all the classes and for orchestrating the monthly Zentangle group. Most of all thank you for teaching Zentangle, you have had a positive influence on my life.


Zentangle is a fun way for non-artists to be able to connect with that creative part and draw!!!   It is something that can be done by young and old.....and everyone in between.


Nancy is a wonderful Zentangle teacher. She has a calm and encouraging presence that inspires me to do my best. Her classes are well-planned and organized and I always learn new techniques in class to bring to my Zentangle at home. My enthusiasm for Zentangle has branched out to include other art forms. Thank you, Nancy! I'm so glad to learn from you.


I’m lucky to have taken several classes on different aspects of Zentangle from Nancy. I love her enthusiasm, generosity, love of teaching and all the tips and techniques she shares. She motivates and inspires me to explore this lovely art form. She has terrific follow up and shares even more tips and links via email and Facebook after a class. In addition, she hosts a free monthly Zentangle club- wow. Grateful for Nancy D, CZT!


Thank you, Nancy, for a wonderful class. I'm super excited to have this as a relaxing and very portable hobby.


Nancy is an amazing Zentangle teacher! She is patient, encouraging, and loves to share this craft with others. She continues to help me along my Zentangle journey by offering different classes. As Nancy says, after taking a two hour class you have a hobby for life! It's true. Like yoga with a pen! So relaxing. Thank you, Nancy!!!


Thanks for your skillful presentation -- just right for the group.

It was fun today and so amazingly relaxing! You are an inspiring teacher who encourages the students to fly with their new skills and your enthusiasm is contagious. The peace of mind that comes with the art is beyond anything I would have imagined.
Thank you from a former beginner who is now a better beginner.


I've really enjoyed Nancy's Zentangle classes! She introduces new concepts at a pace beginners can follow, while engaging more seasoned "tanglers." I'd recommend her class to anyone who seeks a form of meditation that allows them to use their hands at the same time!


I love Zentangle, because it allows me to draw, using simple, repetitive designs to create something beautiful, while producing a calm and relaxed inner state.


You don't know how much I needed exactly what you provided in class yesterday.      I am trying very hard to simplify my life, and your words resonated with other Zen teachings I've been getting lately.  Mindful.  Aware.  Present.  These are concepts I am working to embrace.  I walked away from class yesterday feeling accomplished and peaceful.  I kept thinking, 'I did art and it wasn't awful!'. Thank you for taking the time to teach us.


Thank you. Designing or creating my own work/art without worry of errors or perfection allowed for better creativity!


I love Zentangle because when I sit down to draw I feel like I can let the creativity flow out through my pen. I love creating my own patterns and I have some patterns that I love using over and over again. I enjoy feeling the sense of calm and well being that comes over me as I become consumed with the drawing. I love letting my pictures unfold and evolve. Zentangle is an escape from the stresses of our daily routines.


Thank you Nancy. I had such a good time!  I keep seeing Zentangle patterns all over the place now! 

I love Zentangle and having the opportunity to Zentangle with Nancy in the middle of my work day was fabulous!  What a great way to spend the lunch hour.

Awesome! I am definitely going to continue doing this on my own time.


Engaging, relaxing and helpful for me personally and professionally!


After a long, stressful day at work, I find the best way to relax is to put on some classical music, take a few deep breaths, and draw some Zentangle patterns. After doing that for a few minutes, I find I have renewed energy for the evening and am ready to take on any tasks that I still need to accomplish.

I love Zentangle because it's portable, easily done without prior drawing experience, and can be enjoyed with my 8-year-old granddaughter!

Zentangle has allowed me to see my creative side and know I can create anything.

I love Zentangle as it allows me to embrace an entire new aspect of my creative self. Who knew that having the simple ability to draw a dot, a line, c, s and o could be transformed into such fine art. Plus, when you get into it, you truly can reach zen.
