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.


Thank you for your support. If you don’t already, why not follow me on Facebook and Instagram.
