"Thank you Eni for your exciting initiative for Art Clubbers, bringing to us Live Sessions and providing a recording for those who live outside your time zone. Your indepth knowledge of Zentangle is evident in every lesson you create. Today, watching the Fat Paper recording your happy, positive and generous nature shone throughout. I would feel comfortable asking any question in a Live Session without feelings of fear or failure which undoubtedly would enhance my enjoyment of your wonderful Art Club lessons."
