Sequential Drawings...Narrative Art Practise...Colouring Books... Call It What You Will!

I spent my childhood with my nose in books and sketchbooks. Art School was a given, and I put in six years of the stuff, at Emily Carr and then UBC. Just as I was graduating with my MFA I found out I was pregnant. The focus of my artistic practice was on sequential drawings; images that told a story just by being traced and overlapped with eachother. The first subject I turned to after graduating, was amazing development going on inside my body. Next, and pregnant again, I began creating a book I could use to share my love of reading, drawing and colouring.

I also thought, just maybe, I could convince adults to colour my books too, and when the colouring trend spread across the world, I was more than ready to share these projects with people everywhere. I've been carefully developing a drawing style perfectly suited to this fascinating trend all along. Enjoy!
