Big Kids Coloring Book

Coloring books will never lose their appeal - whether you are a pre-kindergarten toddler to the mature adult who is looking for something simple to play with for a solitary pursuit that provides artistic pleasure. This coloring book has the intensity of design in the mandalas, but also the simplicity of simple Zentangles that allow the reader (and budding artist) to pick and chose their favorite design, and then use colored pencils, markers, acrylics, or even crayons to add their own brilliant color combinations. Coloring can be cathartic for those needing something that doesn't take a lot of analysis or thought, while allowing them to pick and chose their personal colors to create an artistic masterpiece. The page of mandalas and Zentangles allow relaxation while you wile away the hours or the day in your own mind. There is no judgment here. Have fun. Use the baseline designs and sketches to play and have fun. If there are blank spaces, along the borders or inside the design, add your own lines and patterns.

She later returned to Old Dominion University to earn her Masters Degree in Adult Education and attended Old Dominion University for her Doctorate of Philosophy in Education (STEMPS/OTS/T&D/HR). Over the years she has developed a distinctive style for her pen and ink illustrations of old barns and houses, as well as Colonial Williamsburg architectural portraiture. She is currently works in mixed-media using recycled magazines to create 3-D images of stylistic animals and mandalas using childhood craft processes (bubble-gum chains, paper footballs & quilling techniques) to create sophisticated paper baskets that are woven together in a non-traditional way. She is the author of 69 books on the topics of business, career search practices, mandala books for hypnotherapy and meditation, coloring books for adults, women and gender studies, and quotes for self-improvement ("2,000+" & "3,000+" series), as well as genealogy and family lineage.
