I am Hazel, the founder of TangleWithHazel, a Certified Zentangle Teacher, and an artist.
I have always nurtured a strong passion for fine arts. Even as I spent a number of years in the corporate world, I always found myself working on a little art piece or doodle art to relax. When I took some time off to prioritize my two lovely daughters, I started experimenting with various media types like watercolors, ink, alcohol inks, coffee, and charcoal. Then I chanced upon Zentangle art.
Becoming a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) at the Mecca of Zentangle art, Rhode Island, U.S. in 2018, was one of the most significant milestones in my personal life. I not only experienced how relaxing and forgiving this art form is but also built relationships and networks with fellow CZTs globally. Finally, I decided to own my role as a CZT and be intentional about it.
So, here I am! I started sharing my knowledge and skills with keen learners, enabling them to experience the beauty of this art form. Recently, I started writing about my passion, my thoughts, and curious wonderings.
TangleWithHazel is a mission to give others a taste of what goes on in my mind, and I have been at it ever since.
