Mikee Huber came to a Zentangle class a couple months ago. Last week at our Zentangle Lovers group night, as I was looking at some of her work, I just had to ask: "What the heck is that??" It looked like so much fluid tangle fun I had to try it right away. The tangle that Mikee had created (and that night was named "Pais") reminded me of a cross between Hairy and Opus. There is something about Pais that won't let me go! I really don't want to stop once I get started!
Here is what Mikee has to say about her tangle creation: "I like for the lines to come from a point, and build off of it. I mostly work from the outer line, inwards. If I feel a Pais needs more, I add to the outside, trying to keep the look that the Pais is blooming or growing. The shapes flow together and take on a life of their own. I like to fill the openings between the shapes with Stipple. Pais also looks great with Printemps surrounding it. Shading adds depth to the tangle."
Mikee is a graphic designer who has many other artsy ways to have fun: basketweaving, gourds, jewelry, painting...just to name the ones I know about. I hope we see more from her! Thanks so much for letting me share this, Mikee! Your work is beautiful!
This is how much I love Pais... Thanks, Mikee!!
