Art-tutor-Zangmo-AlexanderAbout Zangmo Alexander
Art Tutor
Photography Tutor
Creativity Coach
Mindfulness Coach

I am passionate about how making art can be part of a journey of self discovery and how meditation can be part of both art making and self discovery. This has been my focus when teaching and coaching, as well as in my own creative art practice.

I hold a Masters Degree in Fine Art (Distinction) from NUA, a Post Graduate Certificate in Education from Homerton College, Cambridge, and a Diploma in Coaching from the UK Coaching Partnership (Distinction). Professional memberships include The Association for Coaching and The Creativity Coaching Association.

I was a Buddhist nun for seven years, have been on an 8 week Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy course, and have had the good fortune to receive some wonderful meditation instructions from highly realised Tibetan masters.

My early artwork was very illustrative. As I became increasingly interested in the mind, it became more abstract. My work is in public and private collections in the UK and USA.

You can learn more about me and see more of my art work on my art website
