Review by Sharla Hicks, Certified Zentangle Instructor Review:
Sharla's Class Schedule in Anaheim CA

I must say my favorite part of The Beauty of Zentangle book is that 3 of my works are published in this book an exciting validation of my Zentangle Inspired work and I feel very honored to be included with 137 other Zentangle Artists who share the same love that I do. (See 2 of them below.)

This is the first book to be published in a gallery showcase format that shares how wide and diverse Zentangle and Zentangle Inspired Art can be. Authors, Suzanne McNeill and Cindy Shepard, carefully juried the works and included traditional Zentangle 3.5" tiles in black and white and then see how far tanglers are taking their inspirations with a wide range of themes, mixed media exploration, enhanced 3-D objects, and large sized works. Each page turn offers more and more visual excitement. The Beauty of Zentangle is topped off with several new and exciting tangles for you try.

If you are looking for inspiration and new directions in the art of Zentangle, then this book will be an excellent go-to source for new, clever ideas.

About the Authors:
Suzanne McNeill and Cindy Shepard

Suzanne McNeill is the author of more than 30 best-selling books, including Joy of Zentangle, Zentangle Basics, and Zen Mandalas. She is a designer, artist, columnist, TV personality, art instructor, author, and lover of everything hands-on. Her Zentangle-inspired paintings have been called "mesmerizing art." Suzanne is the woman behind Design Originals (an imprint of Fox Chapel Publishing), the leading publisher of Zentangle art. She was voted "Designer of the Year" and received the "Lifetime Achievement Award" from the Craft & Hobby Association.

Cindy Shepard is the author of two successful books, Stash and Smash and Bottle Art, and was a contributor to Zentangle 5, Zentangle 6, Zentangle 8, and Joy of Zentangle. She is an experimental artist with a focus on recycled and mixed media art. Since she attended a Certified Zentangle Teacher training seminar with Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas, her whimsical, colorful style has grown and developed in amazing ways. Energetic Zentangle-inspired patterns have found their way into most of her work. Cindy recently produced her own line of rubber stamps called Moustachio, featuring quirky Zentangle-inspired houses.
