How Coloring Books For Mindfulness Changed My Life
After 20 years of not lifting a pencil, pen, or brush with intent to “create,” I rekindled my passion for art through coloring books.
In 2019, I found that I needed to do something for stress-relief and mindfulness. I wanted to make something beautiful and just get back to basics. I just wanted to color things again!
I’ve always been artistic and conceptual but I had neglected my natural abilities for 20 years. Working in brand marketing jobs (living a bit vicariously through the “creatives” in agencies, tech companies, etc.)
But coloring books cleared my mind. Finishing two entire books helped me find my style. And the entire experience (2019-2020) gave me the confidence I needed to finally identify as an Artist first.
Today, I paint daily, commission originals, and have designed over 500 unique and vibrant ways to bring my Colorings to life in other ways, like fashion, home decor, and augmented reality shows (to start…)
So stay tuned because I can’t NOT color now…
