The Zentangle® Method is an easy-to-learn, relaxing and fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns. It is an empowering and uplifting experience. This creative process develops confidence and accomplishment, self-esteem, stress-reduction and well-being.
I am a Certified Zentangle® Teacher (CZT) and in this workshop I I will teach you how I translated the Zentangle Method® into stitches to create Zentangle® Art Quilts or what I call Quiltangles®. (Some Free Motion Quilting experience is desirable but not required).
For years I used to say "I'm an economist" and lived the life of a busy career woman - always working 10-hour days. Then, I fell in love with a wonderful man who followed me all the way to Mexico and insisted on marrying me. When I got pregnant with my first child I knew I didn’t want to go back to working those crazy hours but I needed something to do. And then I discovered quilting. I became entranced by the textures, colors, combinations, and shapes that result from making a quilt. Now, quilting is what prevents me from eating alive my two sons and my husband! Quilting was once a hobby but now it’s my passion and I love to say “I’m a quilter.”
I am an artist who loves to share my enthusiasm and passion for quilts and Zentangle®. I teach classes at several venues in Northern Virginia and, because I am bilingual, I also teach and promote the Zentangle Method® and the Art of Quilting in Spanish. I have given workshops, lectures and demonstrations so far in two countries.
