THE ZEN ZEBRA DESIGNS STORY
Hello, I’m Janine, a working mum of two minis, two Labradors and wife to a lovely supportive husband.
So where did it all start?
Zen Zebra evolved back in March 2020 when I was having a particularly tough time and, in a bid to help improve my mental health, I discovered the art of zentangle via a short clip on a random Facebook post. I watched tutorials, practised and decided to make family birthday cards and wall art featuring monochrome zentangle designs and Zen Zebra Designs was born.
Since then I’ve expanded to include water-coloured botanical designs, lettering and digital art. More recently I’ve been working on rag rugs and cushions made from recycled and re-purposed materials. I was brought up in a ‘waste-not-want-not’ household so anything that can be used to make a piece of beautiful home decor usually ends up in my workshop. Being eco-conscious is important to me and I’m always looking for new ways to become more environmentally friendly.
