Carolyn Bruner Russell, artist
Originally from Pennsylvania, I moved to Florida in 1992 as an elementary school teacher. Once retired I filled my days with my own pursuits. I came across these interesting, mesmerizing shapes that drew my attention. I learned they were tangles from the Zentangle® method of pattern drawing. I was fortunate enough to be able to take classes in Orlando and eventually went for certification to teach. Now I feel very lucky to be able to put two of my great loves together: teaching and tangling.
My husband, Ted, and I live outside Orlando, Florida with our Aussie/beagle dog Winnie and black and white cat, Churchill. We have four grown children and two grandchildren.
Now that I'm retired, I have immersed myself in the many flavors of Florida. I love traveling through old Florida towns admiring the ancient oaks draped with Spanish moss, and spending a day at the beach. My other interests are yoga, reading, knitting, riding my motorcycle, and of course, creating my art.
