Author. Zentangle enthusiast. Brain cancer survivor.


I found Zentangle in 2018. It’s my therapy. See my art and learn how to draw Zentangles with me through my videos.


Who You Gonna Believe is an empowering webserial about saving myself from my ex-husband, from grief, and from brain cancer.


Get to know me better in my own words, one post at a time. From writing and tangling to misdiagnosis and disability—I blog about it all.


Learn how to draw using Beckah Krahula’s book One Zentangle a Day.
