Hello to all the Diva challenge followers! I am Lee Darter CZT #15. The Diva was at my training seminar as the key note speaker and I was so inspired by her story. I have been tangling for 8 years. I took my first workshop with Suzanne McNeill in Texas 2008. I was hooked, it was like the mother ship calling me home. I felt the same way when I got certified. It is an amazing experience to be around so much talent. I did not want to leave.
My challenge is based on our annual family beach trip to Florida where we have a house. We will be on Anna Maria Island near the summer home of the Ringling Brothers winter home and museum in Sarasota.
What do you think of when you think of the circus?
I think of fun, striped tents and lots of action and movement.
For my guest challenge, create a tile using the tangles Cack by Adele Bruno and Tropicana by Kate Ahrens.
Then just just like a 3 ring circus - chose from either Florz, Linq by Lara Williams or Fescu to add a third element to your design.

I am an elementary school art teacher and have been teaching for 20 years. I have a BFA in advertising art an a MEd in art education. I was voted Northern Virginia Art Educator of the year in 2014. In addition to being a public school teacher, I teach Zentangle at the Candy Factory (Center for the Arts) in Manassas, Virginia and the Workhouse in Lorton, Virginia. I also have a morning Zentangle club for 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students at my school Cedar Point Elementary. The teachers and the parents of the club kids have seen a real change in their attitudes and behavior.
Aside from Zentangle I am also a mixed media, bookbinding, printmaking and paper mache artist.
I am also the president of the Ron Abney Educational Fund. We provide full college scholarships for Takeo, Cambodian
orphans who graduate from high school. This is a charity I inherited from my father-Ron Abney who lived and worked in Cambodia.
