Creating a book together was something friend and author Dawn Sprung and I had talked about for a few years. When the colouring craze hit North America, we knew it was time. We are thrilled with how the book turned out.

SPIRIT OF THE WILD

Inside the book.

The colouring panels are based on my wildlife paintings, and Dawn wrote poetry to compliment the images. The poems enhances our perception of the animals, and gives us insight into their daily life and challenges.

The animals are drawn in a way that they can be multi coloured, like my paintings.

The drawings are hand made, with important lines made thick, so the wildlife will still be seen, no matter how wild the colours.

The paper is thick to hold marker, with perforated pages.
