A year or so ago I discovered zen tangling, using doodles and repetitive line patterns to find that quiet space inside. Having always doodled it was fascinating to find an almost endless amount of patterns created by so many people inspired by this art form.

Zen tangled inspired art uses various patterns going beyond the small tangled squares to incorporate them into larger and more complex drawings.
