I’d rather be drawing!

Adults are coloring


Feathers – a page from the book

We are always looking for ways to de-stress and unwind, or pass the time on the plane, the bus, or in a waiting room. Coloring is perfect for all of the above! With a set of colored pencils and a coloring book, you’re set!

A little about me: I have a ‘vision’ bucket list and drawing is on it, but more specifically I’d like to make a coloring book. The reason it’s a vision list is that I am living with an eye condition RP (Retinitis Pigmentosa), that is slowly robbing me of my sight. Don’t feel sad for me though, we all have a challenge and this is mine. I am appreciating the beauty that is everywhere and committing as much to memory as I can. My coloring book will celebrate sight, color and my love of this planet!

About my Coloring Book


The Lighthouse – a sneak peek at page one of my coloring book!

In November 2015 I started drawing pages that need to be colored! Drawing this style is not only an enjoyable challenge, I also find it calming, even therapeutic! I’m a believer that creating art has the power to soothe the soul, and if coloring my drawings is as relaxing for you as making them is for me, then I consider this project a success.

Sit down after a long day, with a book full of drawings waiting to be brought to life with color. Whether you choose colored pencils, water color pencils, or a couple of graphite pencils for adding shadows and depth, it’s going to be a sweet diversion, I promise.

Adults coloring is not a new thing! I remember as a child opening my favorite coloring book — my mother colored one side and I colored the other. When I became the mother, I colored one side and my child colored the other! The difference today is that we have a great assortment of adult themes, detailed patterns, designs and pictures to choose from and personalize as we desire.

My first coloring book is nearly ready for print! The drawings you see on this page will appear in my book. I’ll post the title and availability in the coming weeks; and I thank you now for your interest in my book!
