Joanne Fink has been using— and loving— Strathmore Artist papers since she started lettering more than three decades ago. In 2009 Joanne put pen to paper, and started Zenspirations®, a combination of creative drawing techniques coupled with scripture and/or one of her uplifting messages. Joanne’s passion for drawing is evident in the huge archive of work – thousands of images – she has created over the years. No matter where she goes, Joanne always has pen and paper with her as her ideas seem to flow endlessly. The tag line for the Zenspirations® brand is ‘Live by inspiring others to fly’…and that’s exactly what she does.

A best-selling author with more than a million books in print, Joanne’s Zenspirations Letters & Patterning, the Zenspirations Dangle Designs Workbook, and the Zenspirations Create, Color Pattern & Play coloring book series, have inspired people around the globe. Her YouTube videos have had more than 1,000,000 views, and her weekly blog focuses on using your creative talents to make a difference in the world. Joanne is excited that her new book, Complete Guide to Bible Journaling: Creative Techniques to Express Your Faith, debuted in February on Amazon’s list of 100 Hot New Releases for 2017. 

When she is not at her drawing board, Joanne enjoys spending time with her family and friends, reading, singing, walking ten thousand steps a day… and inspiring others to create beauty in the world. You can see Joanne’s work, and sign up for her weekly blog, at
