My friend Yvonne Kettner embarked upon a journey to create a zentangle every day for one year. A zentangle is a free-hand drawing, usually containing unpremeditated patterns. Kettner was inspired to attempt such a project by Noah Scalin, and artists who tackled his own year-long creative process to make one skull every day. Kettner finished her venture on August 30th, 2012. On that day, she revealed her decision to tackle yet another 365-day-long project, continuing to draw zentangles, but this time adding colors to her beautiful designs.

In a world constantly creating new types of art, Yvonne Kettner embraced a style not commonly known. Because of her fervor for zentangles, Kettner was able to create a unique piece of art every day for one year. Her appreciation for this distinctive art style shows her most beloved qualities to all those who are graced with seeing her collection. Truly challenging herself and letting her creativity flow every day, this artist from the Netherlands captured the meaning of art: having perseverance and taking joy and pride in her work.
