Artist and designer Kathleen Werner has immersed herself in many different aspects of the art world. Out of college, she created Zen, a boutique featuring Asian art, meditation pieces and teas from all over the world. From customers' interest in the store's decor and art, she went on to designing living spaces and continued on to landscape and commercial design. She also designed and owned a gallery for large scale modern art in Arizona featuring creative local talent. Kathleen's interests eventually turned to a more architectural aesthetic. She recently completed a program at the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture at Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona. While there, she became interested in and inspired by the idea of creating interactive art, large pieces that could be both beautiful and useful. Concepts that could be an enhancement of landscaping or living areas while embracing true function.   Her initial project design Etazin, inspired by the Japanese moon gate is now a permanent installation at Taliesin West.  The most recent Etazin Square incarnation has been added to the collection at the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort and Spa in Gainey Village. Kathleen and her designs have been featured in numerous websites and magazines worldwide and the third Etazin design and location will be announced in 2017.
