Bio: My art is an escape from everyday stresses and upsets, meant to be enjoyed for the colour, the detail, and the exploration and inspection that occurs upon stepping closer. Simultaneously, this escape transfers the feeling of calmness and peace I experience during the creation to the viewer.  My illustrative pieces have the central themes of animals, pattern, and bright colours. These three components are things that make both myself and others feel happy.

My intention as well as attention to details transfer well to the colouring book format.  I think colouring books are great for everyone because they allow each person to enter a meditative state once their focus switches to the page.  It has been scientifically proven that colouring is great for stress reduction. Taking a few minutes out of your day to focus on something other than personal stresses can do wonders for your well-being.
