She lives in Morrisville, NC and works as an IT professional. She loves to explore opportunities where art can become the language that helps bridge barriers and can spill over into everyday life. Her explorations with Zentangle® as a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) since 2012, have opened up new doors of collaboration and creation with students and artists around the globe. A few of her works have been published in a book called ‘500 Tangled Artworks’. As an artist, using her talent to promote art in everyday life and giving back to the community is her focus.

Katrina Thiebaut CZT

Katrina Thiebaut, CZT 22,32 and 36, is a passionate tangler and grateful member of the CZT community.  She and her husband are recently retired from their business of providing residential services for adults with developmental disabilities. They now live in Ada, MI.  Katrina is known for using the Zentangle® Method of drawing to create her unique Zen Kin characters. She wrote a book which she sells through called Katrina’s Zen Kin® Cousins: A Worldwide Project. The reason for the project was to spread joy and foster community and the goal was reached as she received art from 720 different artists from around the world during the worldwide COVID pandemic. Although Katrina spends many hours drawing her Zen Kin, she does enjoy all kinds of tangling projects.  She loves to tangle on different surfaces including wood, canvas, clothing, pottery, shoes, in the snow with her feet and more! She plans to share some time with you tangling on a three-dimensional surface. Katrina’s goal is to spread joy and foster community and the events that Brenda Shaver facilitates are full of these things. Katrina looks forward to seeing you at this event!

Mona Corby CZT

Mona Corby CZT 20 has been a tangler since 2010, was certified in 2015 and loves creating art in many mediums. She has been a working artist in watercolours, soft pastels, pen, ink and graphite, stained glass, medieval illumination and precious metal chain maille jewellery. Covid years slowed down the working aspect of her art creation, and she`s now more of a dabbler. Mona lives in rural Ontario with her husband Don and cats, just down the road from the village of Carlisle. Don is a custom picture framer (very convenient) and nature photographer. Her art studies have been fairly constant at several southern Ontario art schools and private workshops for the past 24 years. She is an art workshop addict. For her, making art is about the process, experimental, trial and error, trying to get past that fear of the blank page she tries to follow the “it’s only paper“ philosophy. The class will include, sharing examples, short demonstrations, and a lot of playtime. There will be a handout with reference material and options for different tiles to work on at home.  She is looking forward to meeting you, or seeing you again.
