Sandy Philips CZT
Sandra (Sandy) Philips has taken art lessons since she was a young child and continues her training with multiple yearly seminars. She has taught at multiple art conference and conventions, including Tangle U. She taught the Zentangle Method as a special studies teacher at Chautauqua Institute and teaches art at OASIS, a college for seniors in her home in Syracuse. Originally an oil painter doing portrait commissions, her passion for art has led her to learn multiple mediums and she often says, “There is not an art form I have not liked or wanted to try”. Sandy is teaching us how to stack patterns, a very cool class.
Pat O’Connor CZT
Pat is a retired teacher. She loves to explore and attempt many different art forms. Since becoming a CZT in 2017 (CZT 28) you can find her most days surrounded by paper, books and pens. Pats interests include knitting, quilting, Zentangle, ZIA, water colour painting and mixed media journaling. When the weather is warm and sunny, you can find Pat in the pool with a good book or on the golf course when not crafting. Pat is sharing a unique concept called “Hand in Hand”.
Ann Sousa CZT
Ann has always been drawn to creative pursuits such as painting, colouring, mixed media, journaling and of course Zentangle. Being part of the Zentangle family has allowed her to develop wonderful friendships. Ann is a CZT 28 and loves organic tangles; they remind her of her years as a floral designer. You can always find her in her Anngelic Touch Nail Studio creating beautiful designs on her client’s nails. Ann is excited to share her brand new class, “It’s All About Me”, where we will be combining meditative tangling and self care.
Yvonne Westover CZT
Yvonne is a Certified Zentangle Teacher ™ (Seminar 13) who also holds a degree in Fine Art. A life long artist, she often enjoys the process more than the outcome. Her work has been published and produced in magazines, calendars, stationery and accessories. She has led art workshops, camps and school programs for young and old over the last 5 years. Yvonne grew up next door to Toronto’s Airport and when she’s not making art, she spends her time with her head in the clouds as a Flight Attendant.
Yvonne is a collector of patterns & pebbles, the dessert menu is required reading and snow is her favourite season! She is thrilled to be returning to TangleOn for the fourth year and is excited to be developing a new class just for this event. Her travels are sure to inspire something interesting.
Brenda Shaver CZT
Brenda has spent her entire life involved in the arts and crafts industry as an entrepreneur and teacher. However, it wasn’t until she found Zentangle® in 2012, and became a CZT 8, that she knew this amazing art form was special and a natural progression to her already innovative career. Brenda is a passionista about bringing people together and learning from others. She is a personal testament that the Zentangle Method works as she shares its magic in workshops across Canada and the US with students of every age and ability. Creativity, inspiration, and imagination are constant everyday necessities for Brenda and she loves spending time with her grandchildren. Brenda is working on a unique class for TangleOn 2020….details coming soon.
