An Exciting Year Ahead

March 9 2020

hmmm… It seems I get around to blogging about this time every year.. last year was a great year for me.. Loved RMZR and made some wonderful new friends.. and had a blast at Brenda Shavers TangleON retreat at the fabulous Prince of Wales hotel at Niagara on the Lake. Life is good in the Zentangle world.

This year is already looking very exciting with Tangle Island workshops with CZT Nancy Dawes in Parksville and Victoria.

Later in the Fall I will be do a day at the MacMillan Arts Centre with CZT Rhonda Roy with some lovely snow themed artwork.

I have a show this AUGUST 2020 of Zentangle and Fine Art with my friend and fellow artist Jennifer Peers at the Shavasana Art Gallery & Cafe. Last year Jennifer and I colluded with a show at the Mayne island Library.  We both sold items and had lots of fun.

A busy year!

img014What a lot of fun I have been having! Last Fall and Spring I taught workshops in Ontario, and up and down Vancouver Island, as well as being invited to teach at Tangle U! So in April I travelled to Portland Maine for  Tangle U 2016 to teach 118 CZT’s from all over the world, and was inspired by the many other classes I attended! I have soooo much to share! What fun!

In the last year or so I have studied with such wonderful and inspiring teachers. Cheryl Moote, (Twice!) Lynn Mead, Minette Riorden, Margaret Bremner, Lisa Heron, Denise Rudd, Kate Lamontagne, Meridith Yuhas, Molly Hollibaugh (Twice!), Betty Abdu, Brenda Shaver,  Chris Letourneau, and Laura Harms (the diva).

I have also had the opportunity to do Pro D workshops for various school districts on Vancouver Island as well as some classroom gigs (which I LOVE) teaching elementary and highschool students.

I love collaborating with other CZT’s and Barb Round, Nancy Dawes, Brenda Shaver and I have all teamed up in the last year, (not to mention the Tangle Island team of myself, Marie Browning, Barb Round Nancy Dawes and Linda Gardner), and I am looking forward to a Zentangle Christmas with CZT Rhonda Roy. Collaborating just multiplies the fun and I am looking forward do doing more of this!

Looking forward to a great new season meeting old friends and making new.



Elements of Style


Elements of Style a fabulous class created by Chris Letourneau (author of ‘Made in the Shade’ and ‘Pattern Play’) at Can Tangle 2015 (a Pro D conference for CZT’s). In this fun and skill enhancing class you will learn six fundamental approaches that radically change the resulting look of any tangle pattern. I have seen some spectacular results with my ‘mac and cheese’ tangles. You will be delighted with the versatility these techniques provide, while creating your own mini set of samples.

Next class at:

  • Saturday September 17th 1pm-4pm (I am offering Basics 1 in the morning)
  • Wednesday September 21st 9:30-12:30

Cost for single class:  $47.50
