Artist and Educator
InkSpirations artwork comes in a variety of forms via ink and fabric painting, Mindful-Tangle, and watercolors. I’ve taught art throughout my life and love to help people learn to be creative. The sparkle in the eye and the satisfied smile are my rewards.
I’ve moved back to the Yakima area from Vancouver, WA and I’m enjoying this area immensely, especially its climate and the abundance of produce available. I love that this is a community that loves the arts.
Contact me to teach a social group the Mindful-Tangle method or a basic watercolor lesson. InkSpirations Prints are also available for sale.
Zentangle Method® is a form of art that has been around for thousands of years. I’ve been incorporating this type of art in my work for many years prior to it being developed and publicized.
I love to enhance my paintings with Mindful-Tangling and find that beginners love to learn they can be creative with this relaxing, calming way of being creative. The method uses thousands of patterns with repetitive pencil or pen strokes — I call it “Mindful Tangling.” It reflects the psychological relaxation and focus I enjoy.

Inktense© is painting with ink. The specially designed pencil lead turns to ink when water touches it! The process of allowing the ink to dry between layers keeps layers from mixing together to get a muddy look. The colors are vibrant and intense if layered, or light and airy if using more water and applying very small amounts of pigment. Inktense pencils may also be used to paint on fabric.
