Welcome to positive living for the mind and body

After a dark period in my life of about 5 years where anxiety and low depression took over, I've been trying to slowly regain my life, find some balance and have more good days than bad.

This website it a central point of things that worked for me, which I'm sharing to help others.

Adult colouring book published: Drawn to Fabulous Flowers

Cover flowers SM

I'm delighted to bring you my new greyscale colouring book, Drawn to Fabulous Flowers.

Living in the South West of the UK, I'm lucky be surrounded by gorgeous countryside, large old estates and plenty of pretty gardens. I have hundreds of photographs of flowers and wanted to share them through my colouring book.

Here is the description: With 30 delightful greyscale images of English country garden flowers from the spring and summer, this book is perfect for flower lovers everywhere. The images have been digitally rendered into soft halftones from my photographs.

As with all my colouring books, the pages are single sided so you can cut out and keep your colouring. The book also includes small test images and scribble pages at the back.

Colourists click here for the original photos for your colouring reference.

My next hand-drawn book, Drawn to the Enchanted Garden, will be an adventure with magical creatures. 

 Here's quick flip through of the pages:

Local fairs: On the road with my colouring books

It's always nice to hear that people like my designs, but the big test was when I recently took my two published colouring books to some local fairs.

The fairs were both in my hometown of Plymouth in the UK, and one was a wellbeing fair and the other was for crafts. The above photos were from the craft fair, in a beautiful location, right at the edge of the ocean.

It was lovely to chat to people about colouring and receive positive comments about my designs. 

I'll be doing a few more fairs in my local area before Christmas and my next book, Drawn to Fabulous Flowers, will be out by then too.
