Zentangle is an easy to learn method of creating beautiful images from repetitive patterns developed by Maria Thomas and Rick Roberts. ZIA or Zentangle Inspired Art is combining the Zentangle method of repeating patterns with other forms of art. I like to incorporate many of the patterns I see in nature into my ZIA pieces...often working from my original drawings and "tangling" them up. I will be taking my Zentangle Certification in October of 2011 and am looking forward to teaching and sharing this wonderful form of art. Learn more at www.Zentangle.com
