About

Julie and LoisHello, I’m Julie ~ after my first Zentangle class, I was hooked and knew I wanted to learn more and teach this wonderful artform to others. I’m constantly amazed at how Zentangle impacts people’s lives. Those who said they couldn’t draw are creating beautiful artwork and are empowered to do other things they thought they could never do. That’s part of the magic of the art of Zentangle.

I became a CZT in May, 2011, and have had the pleasure of teaching classes from beginning Zentangle to advanced Zentangle inspired art. While living on the Big Island of  Hawaii, I was lucky enough to collaboratively teach Zentangle with some of my favorite people, Lois and Earl Stokes, CZTs. I’m currently in central North Carolina—email me if you’re interested in learning Zentangle.

In addition to being a CZT, I’m a graphic designer, lover of letters, and all-around crafty girl. I’m an award-winning educator and my mission is to empower others through their own unique creative expression. See my graphic design portfolio at KalaCreative.com.
