~The Artist In All Of Us~

My sister and partner, Jan Steinle, created this mosaic of Zentangle Inspired Art (ZIA) this past year. She's the primary artist for our blog. Her tangles are intricate, layered designs that are created from repetitive patterns. She became a Certified Zentangle Teachter (CZT) this past Spring and is currently teaching locally and in the midwest. 

From the creation of The Sandwich Woman Community and it's blog, we felt Zentangle Inspired Art was a perfect metaphor for The Sandwich Generation. We fell in love with this art form. Multi-layered, detailed, exquisite and celestial all at once: an image of patterns and swirls that portray The Sandwich Generation from our viewpoint as artists. We have found peace in this meditative art form that creates something that is pleasing to the eye. 
You don't have to be an artist to create a Zentangle. Anyone can make the same pattern over and over again.  

We hope when you visit, you find peace, harmony, healing, knowledge and inspiration. Being a San Gen is no easy feat. It requires resilience and stamina.
