Cathy Boytos 


Cathy Boytos has spent most of her life creating art. (Fine Art, Mixed Media, Photography and Botanicals). She is an award-winning Graphic Designer, but now devotes most of her time to ZentangleŽ and Botanical Illustration Art. Her love of botanicals began years ago when she owned a boutique garden shop. During that time, she created a line of hand-drawn botanical greeting cards which she sold in her garden shop.

She left working in the corporate world as a Graphic Designer and became a certified Zentangle instructor in 2014. She immediately began teaching Zentangle classes in the Triangle area of NC. Her love of teaching began when she taught Graphic Design at a local Community College. Although she has spent years selling and displaying her art at Art Shows and Exhibits, her passion is in teaching art.

Prior to the pandemic, she spent time volunteering at Oak City Cares in Raleigh which is a multi-functional facility to help the homeless community. She offered free Zentangle classes to the homeless and is looking forward to going back. 

Cathy lives in Raleigh, NC with her husband; Greg and their cat; Annie. You can see more of her work on her website: thetriangletangle.com
