Conzentric & Rick and Maria

Zentangle is our passion. It has led us to organize, host and teach Zentangle teacher training seminars and other events in Europe.

Since our founding in 2018, we have certified over 500 Zentangle teachers from all over the world in our European seminars. From the very start, Rick and Maria, the founders of Zentangle, were enthusiastic about our idea to bring the CZT seminars to Europe. We are grateful for their ongoing support, and our close partnership with Zentangle, Inc.

By offering language support and simultaneous translations (so far: English, German, French and Spanish), we continue to pursue our mission of making it possible for more people to follow the Zentangle teacher training in their native language.

Here are the people who make up our team:

Meet our team members

Katharina Königsbauer
Since Katharina became a CZT, a lot has happened in her life: she has written books about Zentangle and taught numerous courses for young and old. In her "Tanglekunst Shop", tanglers all over Europe can stock up on everything they need for tangling. Between her desk, two children and partner, Katharina practices Zentangle to bring a little relaxation into her everyday life. Katharina is co-partner of Conzentric GbR, together with Jennifer.

Jennifer Hohensteiner 
Jennifer is from the United States, but has lived in Germany since 1990. She discovered Zentangle in 2013 and becoming a CZT was her present to herself when she turned 50 in 2015. She teaches regular workshops to a group of loyal students who, like her, cannot seem to get enough of Zentangle. Besides tangling, Jennifer paints, draws, and writes stories and poems. She also loves to sing – but her family seems to prefer it when she tangles. Jennifer is a founding member and co-partner of Conzentric GbR.

Ilona Thurn
Ilona supports Conzentric in the back office, making sure the numbers also add up at the end of each creative day. Behind the scenes Ilona Thurn supports us with organization and everything that has to do with bookings and payments. And she is also a CZT. She likes to spend her free time out in nature - hiking, biking and enjoying the lakes in the area where she lives.

Elizabeth Hicks & Herbert Eißmann
Liz and Herbert are professional simultaneous translators and translate our seminar into English. The feedback from our international attendees on their translation is fantastic. Liz and Herbert have been translating since our very first seminar and they meanwhile know quite a lot about Zentangle.

We couldn't do it alone

Our priority is making the CZT seminar experience wonderful for our attendees. We are grateful to have the support of our extended seminar team, which includes the teachers, translators, material and Q&A support, techncial support and backoffice support.
