This weeks Author Focus features Sandy Hunter from Texas, USA.
My name is Sandy Hunter, and I’ve been a certified Zentangle® teacher since February of 2012.
“I was a cookie decorator for fourteen years, but then the economy tanked and after a very long, hard battle, the shop was forced to close its doors for good. I spent several months after that with the sinking feeling that I might never find my place in this world, because the job listings I was seeing out there didn’t suit my talents or abilities at all.
Husband, mother, friend- the three most important people in my life all had a hand in my introduction to Zentangle®. First, my amazing husband, whose unfailing support and encouragement gave me the courage to try making it into a career. Second, my mom, who encouraged me to ‘like’ the Facebook page of a friend with an art studio, so I could see her upcoming class list (where I discovered the Zentangle® class I took with Sandhya). Third, My former boss and friend, Linda, who learned about Zentangle® from a fellow quilter and first introduced me to it. And finally, Rick and Maria, for creating the whole concept in the first place. They’re wonderful people, and I have found the whole CZT community to be very welcoming and encouraging.”
Sandy has been designing many well-known patterns. For the author focus we will be exploring one by one, beginning with my all-time favorite: Akoya
Sandy has written detailed instructions on her blog making it easy to master this pattern.
During the course of the week we will explore many more of Sandy’s patterns!
