I'm an artist who loves to collaborate.

I'm an award-winning artist with over 20 years experience in painting, drawing, sculpture, costume design, and much more. But now I know where my heart is.

In the summer of 2017, I colored for the first time in my entire life, thanks to my little sister. She gave me my first coloring book and when I needed to relax, I pulled it out and started coloring. It immediately put me at peace, and allowed me to slowly unravel and make sense of my messy life.

I believe that coloring books are a useful tool for people of all skills to enjoy art in a relaxing, meditative way – free from the concerns of creating a compelling design. Just grab your colors and bring the page to life! What a joy!

In today’s stressful, mixed-up world, with so many unpredictable events happening – I truly feel that coloring is a way for people to regain control of their own world and allow creative expression without rules. Coloring is a safe, sacred space for anyone – young, old, meticulous and messy – ANYONE to enjoy art.

The collaborative nature of coloring books is fascinating to me. As a colorist – I enjoy flipping through my coloring books until a page speaks to my current mood. I choose my pages based solely on how I feel at the moment. Then I enjoy creating a whole world in that page, inspired by the illustrator’s design.

As an illustrator of coloring books, I feel so excited to bring a page into the world, wondering what the endless possibilities for coloring a page will be. I most prefer creating pages without a clear idea of what color should go where – a truly open canvas for any color to feel at home. My favorite part about creating pages is seeing what others do with the page – and hearing how it helped them unwind and de-stress after a difficult day.

I'm already hard at work on my third book, which will be much improved from the first two in design and hopefully will push my abilities as an artist even more!

I’m bringing healing and happiness to the world… one coloring page at a time!

Thanks for visiting my shop, I hope you have a wonderful, magical time coloring!
