I’m a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) who currently live in Tokyo metropolitan area. I enjoy drawing Zentangle®︎ art, and my passion is to teach this amazing art method.

When I discovered the world of Zentangle, it was like finding my long lost friend. I started by studying patterns on my own using books and YouTube videos. But I don’t think I truly understood the magic of Zentangle until I took my first Zentangle class from a local CZT. This eye-opening experience made me want to share Zentangle method with others. In 2017, I started my career as a CZT in Washington.

In 2020, I had the privilege of translating Rick & Maria’s book “Zentangle Primer Vol.1” to Japanese, which helped me to further my understanding of the Zentangle method and its benefits.

Anything is possible, one stroke at a time” is Zentangle’s core value. Zentangle is not just a beautiful art form but it has also given me the courage to explore deeper into my own creativity and take on some projects that I thought were impossible before (like opening an online school).

Now it is my mission to share the joy of Zentangle with as many people as possible!
