I used to be creatively lost!

I’m not a person who carries a lot of regrets, but one thing I do regret is not recognising how creative I was created to be much earlier in life. I spent decades trying to fit into boxes and moulds that other people had for me, and in doing so, I wound up unfulfilled, depressed, empty and with no real purpose or zest for life.

In 2013 I discovered Zentangle® art and when I did, something was unlocked in me creatively. The Zentangle® Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing, and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It was created by Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas. “Zentangle” is a registered trademark of Zentangle, Inc. Learn more at zentangle.com.

Now I’m focused on helping others to discover their creative potential. The very first thing the Lord ever did was create (Gen 1:1) The Lord has made each of us in His image, and if He’s creative, we’re creative. We are all artists. We were made by a Creator to be creative.

We all carry a unique and beautiful potential that is waiting to be fully realised and nurtured. Recognising, honouring, growing and sharing this potential builds and encourages others. It gives us purpose! But most importantly, it gives glory to our Creator.

I call it being an Expressive.

How can I help you be Expressive?

Draw and Create

I will encourage you to draw and create. I’ve been drawing and tangling for over 9 years and I can attest to how great a regular creative practice is for expression. Check out my gallery to see where regular expression has taken me.


I will introduce you to the practice of journalling. Each month you will receive journal prompts that are designed to get your creative expression going. Receive yours by signing up to my Expressive’s List.

Regular Encouragement

I provide lots of encouragement and resources on my blog and in the newsletter to my Expressive’s List subscribers. This encouragement will help you in your expressive journey. Head over to my blog now to be inspired.

What people are saying about me as an Expressive

Chrissie Murphy’s designs and art is beautiful and inspiring! I love to see people participate in the arts. I love the variety of Chrissie’s products, explorations, and adventures with art medium and I ADORE how she uses it to reflect on and illustrate creatively, spiritual truths in her BLOG.

I received a personalized art work by Chrissie Murphy from a friend for my birthday, and was truly overwhelmed. The intricacy and inspiration in this design is unlike any gift I’ve ever been honored with before. There is so much depth, and even spirituality that radiates from this imagery, and, as a writer, gives me an amazing amount inspiration every day. This really is a one of a kind gift for someone special, and something to keep forever. I know exactly which way I’ll be headed next time I’m stuck on looking for a unique present, and you wont have to look any further either. PS, you could even order one for yourself for inspiration and beauty alone!
