About Yvonne Westover, CZT
Yvonne learned to paint her name, before she could write it. She has her folk artist grandmother to thank for her love of paint and patterns. So when she grew up she went to art school where she learned to push the boundaries of what her supplies (and budget) could do while she earned her B.F.A. Her final paper was about why the process of creating is the art. 18 years later when she became a CZT in Rhode Island in November of 2013, Yvonne found that Zentangle confirmed why making art is about the process.
Yvonne gets excited about inspiring people to create by showing them how to use or start with what they have and to give them confidence by learning to play with those supplies. She has been teaching Zentangle, Zia, watercolour and mixed media over the last 10 years to a variety of schools, camps, corporations and private events. She loves creating a new experience for each of them!
Take off and Land is Yvonne’s favourite Zentangle Term because she’s also a Flight Attendant!
