About Zangmo Alexander and Creative Way Art
Welcome! My name is Zangmo Alexander, founder of Creative Way Art, which aims to help people discover and express themselves through art
How did Creative Way Art begin?
For over 25 years I taught creativity, art and photography courses in colleges, schools, the community and in private practice. During this time, I noticed how apparently able students and clients seemed stuck in negative self talk, resistances and blocks preventing them from just being themselves and expressing themselves creatively, compassionately and authentically.
Inspired to help them, I trained as a coach and developed Creative Way Art, which offers a flexible, completely personalised approach to facilitating artistic creativity using a range of techniques from art teaching, art therapy, life coaching, mindfulness teaching and creativity coaching. This has been an immensely fascinating and fulfilling journey, for many of my students, clients and myself.

A bit about Zangmo Alexander
A fully qualified Art Teacher with a Masters degree in Fine Art and a Life Coaching Diploma, I have also
had the good fortune to train with Tibetan Buddhist spiritual masters for over 20 years, during which time I was also a Buddhist nun for seven years.
I also participated in a secular 8 week Mindfulness course with the University of Bangor. Professional memberships include the Association for Coaching and the Creativity Coaching Association.
As a professional artist I have been immersed in exploring how personal and spiritual development could be integrated with making art. This began with participating in art therapy and Jungian psychotherapy, which led to an interest in meditation and healing.
My early artwork was very illustrative. As I became increasingly interested in the mind and spirituality, it became more abstract. My work is in public and private collections in the UK and USA.
