Alice, Simona, and Ina met through Facebook. It soon crystallized that all 3 have a lot in common: the love for drawing, blogging, chatting, and of course CATS!
Combining their talents produced this entertaining Journal. Each one contributed in their own way – recommending their favorite method to apply meditative drawing during a stressful day.
Simona is a talented artist that lives from her art. In 2010, she discovered mindful tangling while searching for ways to fight a chronic illness. Tangling acts as a painkiller for her. She is also dedicated to mixed media journaling and enjoys creating beautiful Mandalas.
Simona lives in Italy with her family and her 4 cats.

Alice lives in Florida, USA, with her husband and cat. She has three grown children.
“I did not grow up believing I could draw, so tangling really spoke to me. Any one who can follow directions can learn the art of tangling and make beautiful works of art. I literally found art journaling and tangling on pinterest. It sang to me, it drew me in. Now I consider myself an artangleologist – designing my own tangles, having my work published, creating color tutorials, and generally having a blast creating art! Who would have ever believed it?”

Ina’s art has been influenced by the fact that she lived on 3 different continents; Europe, Africa and Australia.
“I apply the same principles to my artwork that I applied to my work as a photographer: composition, colour balance and the effect of light and shadow.” Her favourite mediums are bright alcohol-based ink markers combined with pencil for shading. Drawing provides her with a way to reflect on the beauty of nature and the harmony in which patterns can interact with each other.
Ina lives with her family, cat, dog and hamster in Germany.
