My Very First Colouring Books Come To Life

Posted by on Mar 31, 2016 in Blog, Colouring Books, Licensing

A dream job came my way last Fall. One that I was so excited to get up every day and pour myself into. With great excitement, I can finally let you know that not one, but two colouring books that I illustrated are now shipping to stores.

First, there is The Artist’s Alphabet, which is an elaboration on Nature Walk ABC, the alphabet panel from my latest fabric collection.

There are more elements on each page than in the fabric, giving you more nature to delight in colouring.

The pages are perforated, allowing for sharing, framing & hanging you artwork, and the book contains multiples of each letter, so you will have no problem spelling names and inspirational words.

The second book is Words of Wisdom.

Over 90 unique pages (again perforated) full of inspirational words and phrases to help push us to great heights, remind us to think positively and get us out of that funk we sometimes find ourselves in. Here are a few examples of what you will find inside:

The books are published by Eccolo. The quality of their products is impeccable and they did not disappoint when it came to putting together these two books that I am so proud to have my name on.

You can find the books here & here.
If you have a store and are interested in carrying the books (perhaps to co-ordinate with my Nature Walk fabric line) you can contact Eccolo directly: or call at 787-686-8486 ext. 107

    So excited to get one of our colouring books at the CQA show on Saturday. It was great meeting you and my granddaughters are excited that we are going to have a few colouring dates this summer. One more week of school and we will plan a date complete with tea party of course :-). It was great meeting you and I’m admiring my zebra fabrics and the boy’s collection that I purchased as well.
