Hello – I am Pat Mathes and live in Lawrence, Kansas, right outside Kansas City. I am an artist, a Certified Zentangle Teacher and a retired grandmother with a love of arts and crafts. I grew up on a farm in an era when everyone knitted, crocheted, sewed, etc. as a way of life. The love of these arts stayed with me and now I can really start enjoying them more. I have always loved art and felt I was not good at it. I found Zentangle in 2013 and took numerous classes from a CZT in Colorado before going to Providence, Rhode Island in 2014 to become a Certified Zentangle Teacher. I am continually expanding my knowledge, still taking classes both in Zentangle and in drawing. I combine my love of art, color and life in the Zentangle tiles and Zentangle Inspired Art I create. And I love it that I finally can say - I AM AN ARTIST!
