Art Tutor and Mindful Creativity Coach Zangmo Alexander

Develop Creative Drawing and Painting Skills

Relax and enjoy One-to-One, Step-by-Step Art Tuition in the basics of creative Drawing and Painting with a supportive, encouraging, highly experienced Art Tutor. This will give you a toolbox of creative techniques from which you can explore themes of personal interest.

Creative Drawing and Painting Explorations

With your new toolbox of Drawing and Painting Skills, you are encouraged to experiment with a range of inspiring art materials and creative approaches to ideas and themes of personal interest.

Art From Within Retreats and Workshops

In addition to exploring from observation of the world around you, you can also freely explore and express the world within you. Art practice here is a personal, self exploration process with endless possibilities and no 'right' way to do anything. 

Art and Meditation Tuition, Retreats and Coaching

Here we are using skills, creative processes and art from within combined with mindful awareness meditation as a process for well-being, self expression, self exploration, as well as discovering insight, compassion, freedom and even joy.

Mindful Creativity Coaching

Life and expectations can get in the way to the point where we feel disconnected from who we are and demotivated. this is where supportive, confidential one-to-one conversations with and experienced, empathic coach or mentor can help us begin to clarity what what gives us meaning and values and how we might begin to change our life, with all its messiness, to embrace meaning.

Everyone is welcome - prior art or mindfulness experience are not necessary as these can be taught.

Contact me on 01379 897393 for a free 20 minute consultation to discuss what you are looking for.​​

What Students and Clients Say

I want to thank Zangmo Alexander for her help and support with some serious issues in my life. She is a caring, supportive individual that can almost see into your soul. She has helped me clarify many recent issues plus helped with an "action plan" for dealing with these issues. Her coaching is incredibly astute and personal. I would recommend those of you considering coaching to contact Zangmo.  

- K.G. Thetford

Ex­cel­lent day. Loved doing ex­press­ive paint­ing.... would re­com­mend it to all.  

- R.T, Nor­folk: Ex­press­ive Paint­ing Work­shop

These ses­sions have helped me to define my broad goals, to set short term tar­gets and to find the con­fid­ence to ex­pand and ex­plore my work as a tex­tile artist.  

- B.B, Nor­folk: Cre­ativ­ity Coach­ing

My re­treat with Zangmo was a most en­joy­able ex­per­i­ence, as her sup­port and en­cour­age­ment has given me the de­sire to pur­sue my love of col­our and ex­pres­sion again. It has been a few weeks now since my time with her in Nor­folk, and something I no­tice is that when I wake in the morn­ings, I have feel­ings of hope and ex­cite­ment from these new be­gin­nings and a re­lease with my own cre­at­ive­ness. I feel I've been given a new gift of life. 

- G.R, Kent: First Cre­ativ­ity Coach­ing Re­treat

How grate­ful I feel that I found Zangmo on the in­ter­net. One-to-One Tu­ition was a per­fect choice for me, one which I'd love to re­peat. I have no hes­it­a­tion in re­com­mend­ing this to oth­ers. From the first I found Zangmo wel­com­ing, friendly, per­cept­ive and at­tent­ive. She listened to me and ob­served me so well without im­pos­ing; was gently chal­len­ging and sup­port­ive throughout.​


An ac­com­plished artist and teacher, Zangmo with her know­ledge, man­ner, per­son­al­ity and ex­per­i­ence in many areas gave me a very be­ne­fi­cial pro­cess to de­velop free­dom in my art work. Com­bin­ing these tech­niques with some med­it­a­tion I move for­ward with con­fid­ence; I can re­lease my­self from pre­vi­ous lim­it­a­tions. Thank you Zangmo.​ 

- S.M, Cyprus: Art Tu­ition

Our daugh­ter was in her A2 year and strug­gling with her Pho­to­graphy A level. We en­gaged Zangmo to help. It was clear that she had con­sid­er­able ex­per­i­ence with the sub­ject and what was re­quired from the ex­am­in­a­tion board. From the start she as­sisted by en­sur­ing that a strong frame­work was put into place.


This had an im­me­di­ate ef­fect of giv­ing our daugh­ter the con­fid­ence she needed to allow her to pro­gress in a mean­ing­ful way. Her ap­proach is to lead but not take over al­low­ing the pro­ject port­fo­lio to de­velop in a con­struct­ive man­ner, fit­ting in with the school course work and main­tain­ing a fresh per­spect­ive. 

- Jayne O, At­tle­bor­ough, Nor­folk

I had reached a stage in my paint­ing where I felt stuck and stale and lack­ing in­spir­a­tion.  I needed someone to guide me and help me over­come my cre­at­ive blocks. I’ve been work­ing with Zangmo via email and tele­phone, and I have been in­spired by her friendly and sym­path­etic coach­ing.


Under her guid­ance, I have learnt how to tap into the emo­tional and cre­at­ive parts of my­self and to ex­press them artistically. While al­ways being gentle and sup­port­ive, she has chal­lenged me to ex­press my­self in many dif­fer­ent ways – often push­ing my but­tons as well as my bound­ar­ies!  She never dic­tates what I ‘should’ do.  Rather, she makes sug­ges­tions and comes up with all sorts of ideas and it’s up to me act on any which res­on­ate with me.  

Dur­ing the hour-long coach­ing ses­sions Zangmo is al­ways fo­cussed on what my aims and needs are.  I really feel that it’s all about me and my art and she is the cata­lyst that en­ables me to ac­cess an in­fin­ite source of cre­ativ­ity within me of which I was un­aware.  

- Liz Reid, Selby

What a bril­liant day.... Zangmo - caring, re­lax­ing, em­pathic teacher - will love to do it again. 

- R.N, Bec­cles: Mind­ful Draw­ing Day Work­shop

​I have found the 20 hours of pho­to­graphy train­ing in­valu­able. From simply point­ing and shoot­ing and hop­ing for the best, I now un­der­stand how to use my cam­era more ef­fect­ively and have more con­fid­ence in using my cam­era. I look at the world in a dif­fer­ent way. Zangmo has been very pa­tient and is a very good teacher. She was quick to work out how I would best learn and what to teach me when I didn't really have a clue.  

- Sue, Nor­folk: Pho­to­graphy Tu­ition

​We just wanted to thank you for your stu­pendous input today. My son is ex­tremely en­er­gised by the ses­sion and has a clear idea of what he needs to do to suc­ceed in his pho­to­graphy exam.  

- P.C. Suf­folk

I have learned a lot from your as­sign­ments. They are well presen­ted, and tech­niques are easy to un­der­stand. I can see my work im­prove as I con­tinue work­ing my way through the sec­tions, so I thought I'd like to say thank you.
