Hello Everyone,

It has been an exciting and busy year for me in my tangled artistry! This Summer I was a participating artist in Courtenay’s Elevate the Arts, Campbell River’s ArtFest, and was also at Ladysmith’s Arts on the Avenue!

I have met many wonderful people, and had lots of classes, with registrants from Ontario for my Organic Tangled Garden class , as well as other Island locations! It is always great to see everyone, and to see the beautiful works that you have produced since our first class together!

Kids have been a big part of my teaching, as I am passionate about encouraging young artists! As the BC school strike lingered on into September, I had a fabulous time with young people aged 8 to 14… and am continually amazed by the beautiful applications they find for their Zentangles!

Lastly This fall I have been doing classes for Eldercollege, and facilitating the ‘secrets of the colour theory’ in  beginners acrylics classes. One class has three generations of family members, and again, it is just so exciting to see how they are all masteringtechniques and producing truly lovely pieces of art!

After Christmas I will be doing more teaching in both Zentangle, and other mediums. If there is a class you would like to explore please email me and I will try to work it into the schedule! I am also planning to teach some beginning and advanced classes again in Ladysmith so I will keep you posted!

One class I have already committed to for the new year is a weekly acrylic ‘Exploring the styles of great artists’… So if you have always yearned to paint your own “Starry Night”, or want to know more about the life and times of Kandinsky, this is the class for you… (lots of fun!)

All these classes are being held at my home studio, and I always have tea and coffee available, and if it’s a blustery day, I usually have a nice fire going in the woodstove too!

Do register early for my space is limited…

Cheers, and happy tangling,
