  I recently moved back to the Yakima area from Vancouver, WA. I’m immensely enjoying this area especially its climate and the abundance of produce available. I love that this is a community that loves the arts.

  My artwork comes in a variety of forms via, Inktense watercolors, fabric painting and Zentangle creations of my own. 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.

  Contact me to teach a social group the Zentangle Method or paint with Inktense, email me at:

The Royal Elephant - Zentangle Method by Meldra Driscoll

Zentangle Method
by Meldra Driscoll

  Zentangle is a form of art that has been around for thousands of years.  However recently, a method of teaching it and a theory of meditation-type art has been perfected by the founders of the Zentangle method.

  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 and find it is extremely easy to teach beginners.  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 not the same as water color. I use ink as the painting medium, with layering techniques that are the same as if I were painting with watercolors.  The difference is that with Inktense, the prior layer doesn't pull up into the current layer to cause muddied colors.  You are painting with ink... in layers... and producing a beautiful vibrant color result.  

  However, these vibrant colors can also be toned down to achieve a pastel look, or they can be layered to create an intensely colorful painting. The choice is yours.
