About Dorothy:

I am a retired Primary School Principal and teacher. I do have a blog on wordpress: Tied in Tangles, and I also have Pinterest board for my Tied in Tangles originals under my name. I haven’t published anything related to art, but I am a member of the online 100Mandalas Sharing Circle, and contribute to community project through that. I began tangling 4 years ago, just before I retired. As a school student I remember being told by an art teacher that I did not have talent or creativity. Discovering ZentangleĀ® online opened up the world of drawing to me, and has enriched my life beyond measure. I used to crochet, knit, do cake decorating along with embroidery, patchwork and quilting. I tangle for mindfulness and as an outlet for my need to be creative. Recently, following the death of my son by suicide, I created a Gratitude Journal of 37 mandalas in his favorite colour, blue – one for every year of his life. It was an amazing way to lead me through the grief process. I take it with me in my handbag, and also when travelling overseas or on our outback adventures here in Australia.
