I love telling stories to kids, helping them discover the power of language and the beauty of illustration. I concentrate on history, being kind to one another, being part of the world. Whether it’s a little girl preparing for her famous friend or turning sour rhubarb to sweet jelly or a young girl struggling with her self-worth at a time of great upheaval, I try to tell the fascinating, humorous well-told story with illustrations to match.

As a kid I loved detail and imagining worlds. As many rediscover the joy and relaxation of coloring, I want to bring the things I loved as a child as well as my adult sensibilities to my books. Whether it’s the things I find beautiful, or funny, I try to realize images upon when the colorist finishes the piece, is proud to sign his or her name alongside mine. I hope you enjoy coloring these Adult All-Ages Coloring Books as much as I enjoyed creating them.

Pieces of Compassion -Variations of the Kalachakra Mandala: An Adult Coloring Book for All Ages
This adult coloring book for all ages is inspired by the Kalachakra Mandala created by Tibetan monks to honor the Dalai Lama's 80th birthday and visit to America. I painstakingly drew a representation of the mandala created by the monks, then took aspects of the drawing and created the various images, which were then inked by hand. This book is meant to relax and channel the colorists energy into a positive, creative, compassionate state. Coloring not only destresses, but it's a great meditative tool as well as honoring a person's natural creativity. There are a couple of pages provided for the colorist to test out media and colors. It's printed on 60# white paper stock with 31 unique designs ranging from expert to intermediary. Some are graced with the wisdom of the Dalai Lama and others are pure design.
