Like other Zentangle artists, Naufa began working on the form for meditative purposes but it did not take long to become a passion. She says: “Although I knew about Zentangle art from my childhood, it was only in Class IX that I started exploring it. This art is a form of mediation and I feel relaxed after sketching.
