Colour Her book

Never stop being creative!

This is my newest art project; a collaboration with graphic designer Iris Glaser.  We were inspired by a window display we painted in my store in December of fairies, Fridas and fashionistas.  (see pictures here)  A few months later we spent some time on the idea of a colouring book for girls and women that would reflect our current experience of art and feminism.  Mix and match was the perfect way to express our varied selves, ever changing and all ages.  Drawing from the comtemporary and the mythological, we created 12 plates that were fun and empowering images.  We chose cardstock so that the book can be used with watercolours as well as markers.  Making sure every head, torso and legs were equally fun and different, we made sure not to include stereotypical professions or princesses.  No princesses at all!  Believing we need to actively choose the images we surround ourselves with, our ladies show a diversity in their expression of femininity.

Here is my daughter Victoria working on her first mix.  She calls this one the ladybug girl.  She really loves the hair and the robot girl legs.
