Biography

Rick Roberts is cofounder of Zentangle and codeveloper of the Zentangle Method. His former vocations include cab driver, musician, photographer, printer, and flute maker. He also lived as a monk for 17 years.

He founded Zentangle with Maria Thomas based on her explanation of her experience as she drew background patterns on a manuscript. She described feelings of timelessness, freedom, well-being, and complete focus on what she was doing with no thought or worry about anything else. After Rick told her she was describing meditation, together they wondered if they could create a simple system so others might enjoy a similar experience. And so began the journey towards discovering the elegant system called the Zentangle Method.

Together Rick and Maria lead workshops, and through their Zentangle certification program they share the philosophies behind the Zentangle Method of drawing so students will have all the knowledge needed to teach the Zentangle Method.
